a 35-year-old man was rushed to hospital with severe head injuries after he was struck by a van on Tuesday night.
The man was hit while crossing in the middle of the street with two of his friends. The driver of the van called 911. His friends left.
Police said the pair rushed off to buy beer before the store closed. They reportedly returned to check on their injured pal, but only after securing their payload.
He was rushed to hospital at a CTAS Level 1 — meaning immediate help was needed. No one takes such injuries lightly. Unless the beer store is about to close, apparently.
