The man was walking in a crosswalk headed southeast on Benson Avenue when he was struck by a driver making a left turn from Elgin Road, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. The man was hit by the front bumper, hood and windshield of the vehicle and transported to Evanston Hospital.

He was listed in a stable but “guarded” condition with a head injury, Dugan said.
