An Albion man is in guarded condition after he was struck by a car in Clarkson early Sunday morning.
Monroe County deputies say that it appears 22 year old Matthew Adema was walking on Lake Road when he was struck by a car.
The driver of the car says he was not able to avoid striking Adema, and deputies say that explanation was verified by a number of witnesses who saw Adema walking across the road.
Adema was hit by the passenger side of the car, and there was significant damage to the car’s windshield. Firefighters at the scene and a paramedic said they noticed a strong odor of alcohol on Adema’s breath.
He suffered multiple injuries including a head injury and is
being treated at Strong Hospital. Deputies say the driver of the car was not intoxicated and was not ticketed.
