LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) --A pedestrian was hit on Dixie Highway early Monday morning.

WHAS11's Brittany Gonzalez was in the middle of a live report about the $5 million in improvements when a pedestrian was struck by a red jeep in the 4400 block of Dixie Highway at approximately 5 a.m.

The pedestrian began walking across the street when an ambulance passed. While in the median, the pedestrian walked back across the street and was hit just before he reached the sidewalk.

Gonzalez went to the man and kept him alert and awake until the EMS arrived on the scene. EMS treated and transported him to St. Mary's Hospital.

The victim was talking to our photographer just minutes before the accident, saying he was going to catch the bus. He apparently just got out of the hospital and had fresh sutures.
