The Omaha Police Department says 55-year-old Richard Brown was hit Thursday morning near a crosswalk between 20th Street and Harney Street.
Sgt. Joe Collins say 71-year-old Joephus Neal, of Lincoln, was driving a Chevrolet Suburban southbound and was preparing to turn east when the accident happened. Brown was crossing Harney Street. Neal told police he had a green light.
Brown suffered head injuries and was taken to Creighton University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.
A spokesman for the medical center says no information about Brown’s condition was available at this time.
Collins says speed and alcohol were not factors in the accident.
