A 72-year-old Southold man was struck by a car while crossing the street at the intersection of Main Road and Youngs Avenue shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday, Southold Town police said.
George Hoffner was crossing near the IGA when he was hit by a vehicle that had been traveling south on Youngs and was turning left to head east on Main Road.
First responders transported Mr. Hoffner to a field at the corner of Youngs Avenue and Route 48, where he was transported via Medivac helicopter to Stony Brook University Medical Center for what police deemed, non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the vehicle, Henry Oman, 74, of Cutchogue, said he did not see Mr. Hoffner in the crosswalk due to sun glare. He was not injured in the accident, police said.
