A pedestrian was struck by a vehicle while crossing a Poway roadway in the middle of a block, a sheriff's sergeant said today.

The driver was headed west on Poway Road around 4:45 p.m. Saturday and hit the pedestrian as he crossed from the right near Pomerado Road, sheriff's Sgt. Kimberly Baker said.

The pedestrian sustained a serious injury to his lower right leg and was taken to Palomar Medical Center to be treated, according to Baker.

Baker said alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
