A Conway man, 75, was airlifted to a Little Rock hospital for evaluation Wednesday morning after police say he was hit by a vehicle on McNutt Road.
Conway police spokesperson LaTresha Woodruff said there has been no update on the man’s condition as of 1 p.m. Thursday.
The driver of the vehicle, a 24-year-old Conway woman, says she was northbound on McNutt Road in her Ford Taurus, around 6:47 a.m., when she observed two cars and a truck southbound, and the man on the edge of the roadway, the accident report states.
The woman told police when she passed the vehicles, “she thought that she had perhaps struck the man in the roadway,” according to the accident report.
The woman said she immediately stopped, and noticed the man lying in the grass. Police said the woman did not have a cell phone, so she drove to a nearby friend’s house to call 911 and returned to the scene of the accident.
The Conway Fire Department and MEMS arrived on scene around 6:53 a.m.
The man was then airlifted to Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock for observation.
Police issued the woman a citation for careless and prohibited driving and for having an expired license. Damage to the vehicle was estimated at $1,000 in the accident report.
