A man walking across East John Rowan Boulevard late Thursday afternoon was struck by a car and sustained a head injury as a result.

Bardstown Police Sgt. Michael Medley said the victim, Larry Lee Tucker of Bardstown, was in critical condition Friday morning at the University of Louisville Hospital.

According to an E-911 Dispatch logs, the accident was reported at 5:39 p.m.

Nelson County Deputy Sheriff Levi Preston, who said he was the first officer on the scene, said Tucker was crossing north on Ky. 245 near Louisville Road from First Christian Church when he was hit by a car going west.

“The way it looked, it was dark and he was wearing dark clothing,” and the driver of the car didn’t see him, Medley said the next day.

Tucker was taken by Nelson County EMS to Flaget Memorial Hospital and transferred to U of L.

When emergency medical personnel were working on him, he was regaining consciousness but was disoriented and unable to provide much information, Preston said.

Officer Andrew Riley of the Bardstown Police Department was the officer working the case.

The Bardstown Fire Department also assisted.
