A pedestrian was rushed to the hospital Friday evening after being struck by a minivan on Northwest Circle Boulevard just west of 17th Street.
The man, whose identity was not immediately available, was unconscious but breathing when he was loaded into an ambulance by Corvallis Fire Department personnel.
Westbound traffic on Circle was being diverted around the scene while police investigated the incident.
Sgt. Brian Stahl of the Corvallis Police Department said the man was apparently crossing Circle Boulevard outside the crosswalk when he was struck by a westbound Honda Odyssey minivan about 5:30 p.m.
“The driver reported not seeing him,” Stahl said.
The sergeant added it was too soon to decide whether any citations would be issued.
The driver, who remained at the scene after the collision, was not immediately identified by police.
Immediately after the collision, the injured pedestrian lay on his back, unmoving, near the southeast entrance to the Kings Circle Shopping Center. Personal items, including a small duffel bag, a baseball cap and a pair of black basketball shoes, lay scattered on the ground nearby.
The incident remained under investigation Friday night.
