A Victoria man was injured Wednesday morning when he was struck by a car while crossing Houston Highway at Ben Wilson Street.

Lynette Adame, 43, of Victoria, was pulling out of the Walgreens parking lot onto Houston Highway when she hit Richard Balli, 63, with the front of her 2011 Chevrolet sport utility vehicle.

Senior Police Officer David Brogger said Balli was found in the street with bleeding ankle.

Adame did not receive a citation.

"In fact, after reviewing the Texas Transportation Code, I'm going to list the pedestrian at fault for pedestrian fail to yield right of way to vehicle," Brogger said via email.

Balli was taken to Citizens Medical Center, where he was listed in stable condition as of about 2 p.m. Wednesday, spokesperson Shannon Spree said.
