A Redding man was seriously injured Friday morning after he was struck by a big rig while he crossed Highway 273, just south of Bransetter Lane.

Police say just before 5:30 a.m. 21-year-old Jeremy Perez crossed Highway 273 without yielding to oncoming traffic. Perez crossed directly in front of a big rig and was struck.

Police say the driver of the big rig was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs, but it appears that Perez was.

When officers arrived on the scene Perez was badly injured, he was immediately transported to Mercy Medical Center where he remains in critical condition.
