SAN ANTONIO - A man is in serious condition after being hit by a car on the east side.

The accident happened just before 11:30 p.m. Tuesday on the corner of South New Braunfels and Denver Boulevard, a couple blocks from Poe Middle School.

Police said the driver swerved to miss the victim but still ended up hitting him and a nearby power pole.

The pedestrian was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center in serious condition.

Officers said the driver will likely not face charges because the man he hit wasn't using a crosswalk.
