A Braddock man was taken to a local hospital by McKeesport Area Rescue Service after being struck by a vehicle in Duquesne.

A pedestrian was struck by a vehicle along North Second Street in Duquesne Monday afternoon.

City police said they were dispatched around 1:15 p.m. for the incident in front of Truman Towers.

Officers reported a 56-year-old Braddock man had walked onto the street behind a vehicle and was struck by a Ford Focus driven by a 65-year-old woman from Duquesne.

Police said damage on the vehicle indicated a low-speed impact with minor damage to the passenger front bumper and passenger-side mirror.

McKeesport Area Rescue Service transported the man to a local hospital for evaluation of back and leg injuries.

The incident is still under investigation. It was unclear if any charges would be filed against the driver.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
