A UA student hit a man who was walking in a crosswalk yesterday evening at the intersection of East Speedway Boulevard and North Mountain Avenue.

Abdallah Nelson, 19, was traveling south on Mountain Avenue and turning left headed eastbound on Speedway Boulevard when she struck Timothy Hart, 26, while he was walking in the crosswalk at about 5:45 p.m., said Officer Dallas Wilson, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

Hart sustained non life-threatening injuries and was taken to the hospital, Wilson said.

Nelson, a journalism junior, said she was on her way home from campus when the incident occurred. She said she did not see the man in the crosswalk before she hit him and she does not think she was speeding.

Mike Mayette, an undeclared junior, was traveling northbound with some friends when Nelson's Jeep Wrangler struck the man.

Mayette said he saw Nelson's vehicle with its turn signal on, attempting to turn left at the intersection. The next thing he knew, the man in the crosswalk was lying on the ground.

"When we saw the guy on the ground we pulled over immediately," Mayette said.

Nelson was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk, Wilson said.
