HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – A car hit an elderly man crossing the street in Hubbard Friday morning, sending him to the hospital.
The crash happened around 8:15 a.m. Friday at 1001 W. Liberty in Hubbard, Ohio. Police said that the man was crossing the street to get his mail and that the driver lives several houses down from where the crash happened.
Ohio State Highway Patrol officers, who are handling the investigation into the crash, think the sun may have blinded the driver so that he didn’t see the man.
