JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

For the second time in two weeks, police responded to a vehicle hitting a pedestrian crossing Red Wolf Boulevard.

Jonesboro police say Roma Tate, 58, of Harrisburg was hospitalized after a pickup truck hit him as he crossed the busy thoroughfare.

The incident happened at 7:21 p.m. Thursday near the Race Street intersection.

Tate was walking west across Red Wolf when a southbound Chevy Silverado driven by Michael Steinnegger, 59, of Jonesboro struck him, according to the incident report.

An ambulance took Tate to St. Bernards Medical Center with several injuries.

This was the second time a pedestrian ended up in the hospital after being struck near that same intersection.

On Wednesday, Dec. 21, Dan J. Redden was flown to a Memphis hospital with serious injuries after a car hit him as he crossed Red Wolf.
