60-year-old Savannah man in critical condition Saturday morning after walking into the path of a pickup truck Friday night.

Daniel Sweeney was transported to Memorial University Medical Center from Bull and Jasper streets just after 9pm.

A Dodge Ram traveling north on Bull Street just north of Washington Avenue struck Sweeney as he was walking at a fast pace through the street.

The driver of the truck attempted to swerve right but Sweeney continued walking, the driver then slammed on brakes and the truck spun counter-clockwise, coming to a rest on top of Sweeney.

The Major Accident Investigation Team of Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department continues to investigate.
