Pedestrian remains in critical condition after being struck by truck in downtown Toledo


A Toledo man is in critical condition tonight after authorities said he was struck by a pickup while crossing an intersection earlier in the day.

Raymond Lutzke, 56, was transferred to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center with "critical injuries to his head" after the 9:20 a.m. incident, authorities said. A hospital spokesman said late today that he was in listed in critical condition.

Police said Mr. Lutzke was crossing North Erie Street at Madison Avenue when he was hit by a Ford F-150, driven by Richard Thompson, 67, of Toledo, police said. Mr. Thompson was turning left onto Erie from Madison.

No charges have been filed and the crash remained under investigation.
