A man was hit by a semi just before 1 p.m. Friday in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.

The man, who hasn’t been identified, was walking on 19th Avenue South and crossing Riverside Avenue when he collided with the trailer on a semitruck turning right. He was walking “against the light,” said an officer on the scene.

The officer said the incident was called in at 12:55 p.m., and the man was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

Police remained on the scene, at one point checking the underside of the semitruck.
