LAKE CITY, FL (WTXL) -- A Lake City man is in critical condition after he was hit by a car early Monday morning, said the Florida Highway Patrol.

61-year-old Joseph Roe was standing on the corner of SE Defender Drive and I 10 when he walked into the intersection, said the highway patrol. That is when Roe was hit by an oncoming car and landed in the eastbound lane, said officers.

The driver of the car, Gerald Ayers, told investigators that Roe just walked out in front of him.

Row was taken to the Shands-Gainsville hospital and was listed in critical condition.
