An employee of Levin's Furniture was injured Monday after he was struck by a vehicle as he tried to stop traffic in a crosswalk.

Robert Overly, 19, of Mt. Pleasant, stepped into the pedestrian crosswalk in front of the furniture store along West Main Street to stop traffic so other employees could carry a couch across the street for loading, borough police said.

He was struck by a Hyundai Santa Fe driven by Erik Hanzel, 32, of 123 Center Ave., Mt. Pleasant, police said.

The impact forced Overly onto the hood of the vehicle and then to the ground. He rolled about 30 feet from the impact site, police said.

Overly was flown to Allegheny General Hospital. He was listed in good condition Wednesday afternoon.

Hanzel was charged with the summary traffic violations of failure to yield right of way to pedestrians, careless driving and obedience to traffic control devices, according to court records.
