Police say Christopher Hayek was also nearly hit by another vehicle before this one on the road in the area of Bayport Drive in the West Atlantic City section of town around 11:58 pm.

Leading into it, the 2017 Kia Forte driven by Adrienne Longcrier, 26, of Ventnor was heading east when she came upon two pedestrians in the road.

Hayek suffered undisclosed serious injuries from the collision and was transported to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center-City Campus for treatment.

It's unclear why the two pedestrians were walking in the road and what color the light was at the time.

Traffic had been detoured in the area for about 2-hours while the investigation was ongoing at the scene of the crash.

The crash is being investigated by Officers Patrick Daly and Thomas Rocco of the Egg Harbor Township Police Department Traffic Safety Unit.
