After being struck by a vehicle in a Mt. Lebanon business district, a pedestrian was taken to UPMC Mercy with a severe head injury, police said.

A 17-year-old boy was driving the vehicle that hit the 30-year-old man around 8:30 p.m. in the 700 block of Washington Road, Mt. Lebanon Lt. Aaron Lauth said in a press release.

The ongoing investigation and witness statements indicate that the teen was driving northbound, when the man attempted to cross mid-block, in an area where there are no crosswalks, Lt. Lauth said.

Police and fire units are still on scene and the block remains closed, according to an Allegheny County emergency dispatch supervisor.
