A pedestrian hit by a car on the North Side late Friday night suffered a broken leg and internal injuries, Madison police reported.

The 30-year-old man was struck shortly before 11 p.m. Friday at the intersection of Northport Drive and Dryden Drive, police spokesman Joel DeSpain said in a statement.

His injuries were considered life threatening, police said.

The 28-year-old Madison woman who was driving the car was cited for a red signal violation, failure to yield to a pedestrian causing great bodily harm, and operating without insurance, DeSpain said.

Police described the woman as very remorseful and said she thought she had a green light, though witnesses and surveillance video indicated it was not, DeSpain said.
