Auburn pedestrian airlifted after being struck by car

A 26-year-old pedestrian was airlifted to Upstate University Hospital after being struck by around 10:10 p.m. on Friday.

Police say Kylle L. Hopkins, 26, was walking through an intersection at Genesee and Columbus streets when he was struck by a vehicle operated by Doris M. Ramsperger, 60, of Auburn.

Police also say that Hopkins was at fault, which meant the operator of the vehicle did not receive a ticket.



The injuries sustained by the pedestrian were not life-threatening.

After the accident, a landing zone was established in the parking lot of a business on Orchard Street, and an ambulance brought Hopkins there to meet up with a helicopter, according to the Auburn Citizen.
