Express Staff Writer

A 53-year-old man was transported to St. Luke's Wood River Medical Center after being struck by a car while crossing Main Street in Ketchum on Monday night.

Ketchum police spokesperson Kim Rogers said the man, believed to be a visitor to the valley, was crossing the street from Formula Sports to Silver Creek Outfitters when he was hit by a 1997 Isuzu driven by 19-year-old Sun Valley resident Benjamin Cardozo.

The accident, in which Cardozo was making a left-hand turn from Highway 75 to Fifth Street, occurred after 7 p.m. Officers from the Ketchum Police Department and an ambulance from the Ketchum Fire Department were called to the scene at 7:24 p.m.

Ketchum Fire Chief Mike Elle said the victim suffered "multiple traumatic injuries to the left side of the body."

Rogers said Cardozo was issued a misdemeanor citation for inattentive/careless driving.
