A man is in the hospital this morning after being hit by a car on University Avenue.

Waterloo Police say it happened at about 1 a.m. east of the University/Midway Drive intersection.

Police say the man darted out into traffic before being hit. They believe he will survive. They say he has some broken bones.

Officers blocked the eastbound lanes of University as they investigated.

Last week, about a block away, a woman died after stepping in front of a car on University.
