A man was critically injured Wednesday morning after he was struck by a car at the intersection of Dorchester and Cross County roads in North Charleston.
North Charleston Police initially reported that the male pedestrian died but Spencer Pryor, public information officer, said Charleston County EMS paramedics were able to revive him.
Pryor said the man was standing at the intersection about 6:30 a.m. when he darted into traffic and was struck by a passing vehicle.
The person's age and identity have not been released.
Pryor said charges have not been filed against the driver.
Dorchester Road traffic was closed for two hours as police investigated the incident. Police re-routed traffic onto Cross County Road until lanes were reopened about 8:30 a.m.
The incident was one of multiple incidents that caused significant delays in the North Charleston area.
A wreck without injuries on Ashley Phosphate Road in front of La Petite Academy contributed to a backup on Ashley Phosphate Road to Dorchester Road.
Authorities also worked a multiple-vehicle wreck in the westbound lanes of Interstate-526 near the Virginia Avenue and North Rhett Avenue exit ramp.
The S.C. Highway Patrol also worked a wreck at Michaux Parkway and International Boulevard.
