An East Spencer man was struck by a vehicle this morning at the intersection of West Innes and South Church streets in downtown Salisbury.
Rachel Harrington was traveling west on Innes Street when she said that a man walked in front of her, crossing from Church Street.
Harrington’s Dodge Neon hit the man, and she said his elbow broke off her left mirror. “I was just startled because he came out of nowhere,” Harrington told a Post reporter.
Salisbury Police Officer D.P. Fleming told the Post that the man’s name is James White, of 412 North Boundary Street in East Spencer. White walked himself to the ambulance and appeared to be holding his left arm.
Officer Fleming confirmed with the Post that White had “entered the intersection illegally,” and said that White had no broken bones but had injured his arm and leg.
