A car hit a 65-year-old man Friday morning, but Minden police say he has no serious injuries.

Police say John Andrews, of Minden, was walking across the street at the intersection of Main Street and East Union when a vehicle making a left turn struck him. Officers believe he struck his head on the curb, causing a large laceration.

He was taken to Minden Medical Center where he received staples in his forehead.

“He was walking through the crosswalk but didn’t have the right of way at the time,” Officer Russell Engi said.

No citations were issued. Engi, Officer First Class Kenneth James, Lt. Seth Young and Lt. Wayne Young responded to the call around 8:22 a.m.

Police say Andrews is known to walk the streets of Minden.
