CARY – Georgetown Drive is open again, after it was closed this morning following a car accident that severely injured an unidentified male pedestrian.

The Cary Fire Protection District responded about 7:45 a.m. to a report of a man struck by a car at the intersection of Georgetown Drive and West Main Street, said Cary Fire Protection District Lt. Michael Douglass.

The victim, an adult male, was unconscious upon the department's arrival at the scene and had suffered serious injuries, Lt. Douglass said.

"The patient was in critical condition," he said. "Which means that vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits ... and indicators are unfavorable."

The victim, whom witnesses at the scene identified as a male, possibly in his 50s or 60s, was transported to the Cary Fire Protection District Station No. 1 on Cary-Algonquin Road. From there he was airlifted to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Lt. Douglass said.

Cary Police are investigating the incident and indicated the accident was not a hit and run, but could not immediately offer further details.
