Police: Man walking
in roadway injured
An unidentified pedestrian was hit and thrown in the air by a Jeep on Siegen Lane on Tuesday night, according to a State Police news release.
A preliminary investigation revealed that Joseph Maldonado, 27, of Baton Rouge, was driving a 2011 Jeep Cherokee south on Siegen Lane in the right lane at the intersection of Rieger Road when he struck a man walking in the roadway at 8 p.m., the release said.
Maldonado steered right to avoid the pedestrian, but struck him with the left side of the Jeep.
Maldonado brought his vehicle to a stop nearby.
Although troopers did not suspect alcohol to have been a factor in the crash, Maldonado voluntarily submitted a breath sample that showed he had no detectable alcohol in his system.
Troopers were unable to secure a blood sample from the pedestrian due to the extent of his injuries.
The incident remains under investigation, the news release says.
