Calgary police say a man who was hit by a car on Stoney Trail Tuesday morning is recovering in hospital.

The incident occurred just before 4 a.m. in a southbound section of Stoney, north of McKnight Trail NE

Police say they were called before the crash because there were concerns that two people were “walking into traffic” and trying to stop vehicles.

According to police, the driver of a 2010 Cadillac sedan then struck one of the pedestrians, a 19-year-old man, when he “drew into” the vehicle’s lane while the vehicle was traveling in the rightmost lane.

The 19-year-old pedestrian was taken to hospital where he remains in critical condition.

Police say the second pedestrian, a 13-year-old boy, was not injured.

The driver of the Cadillac remained at the scene.

Police say speed, alcohol or drugs did not play a role in the collision involving the driver or the two pedestrians.

Anyone with information or dashcam footage is asked to contact police at 403-266-1234.

Tips can also be submitted anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
