Pedestrian hit by vehicle while crossing street to go home in Henning, Minn.

HENNING, Minn.—A pedestrian was taken to a hospital after being hit Sunday afternoon by a vehicle while crossing the road in Henning.

The unidentified man apparently was crossing Fourth Street near U.S. Highway 108 just before 1 p.m. to walk back to his residence in the Otter Tail County city, according to a news release from the Minnesota State Patrol. He had just exited his vehicle, which was parked across the street from his home.

He waited for a westbound vehicle to pass by before crossing, but as he walked into the eastbound lanes, he was struck by a vehicle, according to the State Patrol.

Officers are investigating the crash, and they haven't released the extent of the victim's injuries or the identity of the driver. It's unclear if charges will be filed in the case, as the State Patrol report was listed as incomplete.

Henning is about 95 miles southeast of Fargo.
