A man suffered minor injuries after he was hit by an SUV on Main Road in Mattituck Monday afternoon, Southold Town police said. 

The man was struck by a Ford Explorer driven by a woman who was trying to pick him up on the side of the road and “misjudged” the distance between them, a police officer at the scene said.

The crash, which occurred about 3:30 p.m., was ruled an accident by police and no tickets were issued.

The victim was treated by Mattituck rescue volunteers and taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center for further treatment.
