sffd_firefighters.jpgA vehicle traveling down Market Street skipped a curb downtown this afternoon and struck a pedestrian, a fire spokeswoman said.

Fire Lt. Mindy Talmadge said a man was driving down Market Street at about 4:15 p.m. when his vehicle went over a curb near Front Street, hit the pedestrian and came to a rest between a pole and a building at 333 Market St.

The man, who was in the car with his wife, likely suffered a medical problem prior to the crash. The driver and the pedestrian were both taken to the hospital to be treated for injuries that are not considered to be life-threatening, Talmadge said.

She said the crash caused no structural damage to the downtown building.

Firefighters were no longer in the area at 5 p.m., Talmadge said.
