Investigators say the car was headed north on University Avenue when the driver — who is said to be cooperating with law enforcement — swerved to avoid hitting the man and ended up in the center median near the intersection. No one in the vehicle was injured.

Police say there’s no indication the driver of the vehicle was impaired. The identity of the victim is being withheld until family is notified.
