A pedestrian suffered life-threatening injuries when he was struck by a vehicle early Saturday morning in the Marina district.

According to police, a 23-year-old man was crossing Lombard Street "against a red light" around 1:30 a.m. when he was struck in the intersection by a vehicle traveling westbound.

The driver remained at the scene and was not arrested, and the victim was transported to a hospital with serious injuries.

According to the Department of Health, the intersection where the collision occurred is on the city's high-injury network—the 12 percent of city streets where more than 70 percent of the most severe and fatal injuries occur.
