FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4)- Police in Fort Collins are investigating a car versus pedestrian collision that left one man seriously injured.

Officers rushed at about 6:48 p.m. Friday to the intersection of Cherry Street and Sherwood Streets on reports of the collision.

Police said a 1997 Ford Contour sedan was traveling west on Cherry Street between Sherwood and Whitcomb Streets. A pedestrian, Manuel Gonzales, walked mid-block across Cherry and was struck by the sedan.

Gonzales, 62, of Fort Collins, suffered serious injuries and was rushed to Medical Center of the Rockies. The driver of the sedan, Carol Campau, 38, of Fort Collins, and her passengers were not injured.
