A young man was taken to hospital with possible life-threatening injuries after being struck by a car at a Dartmouth intersection on Wednesday night.

Halifax Regional Police say the incident happened at 8:50 p.m. in the area of Albro Lake Road and Victoria Road.
A 47-year-old man driving a car was going westbound on Albro Lake Road when he hit a 26-year-old man walking through the intersection of Victoria Road, police say.
“At this time, paramedics believe that his injuries could be life threatening, however, more extensive testing will be completed at hospital,” a police release stated Wednesday night. 
In an update Thursday morning, police said the man’s condition has improved and his injuries are no longer life threatening. 
A decision on charges will be made once police complete their investigation.
