ORANGE PARK, Fla. - A pedestrian who was struck by a car went into the windshield before being taken to the Orange Park Medical Center in serious condition.

The driver of the Nissan Versa was not hurt and Florida Highway Patrol said that she is cooperating with troopers. FHP is not releasing the names of either the driver or the pedestrian.
