A man is in the hospital tonight after he was hit by a car in south Bakersfield on Sunday evening.

The California Highway Patrols says the man was traveling southbound on Cottonwood Road on a homemade scooter when the car, which was traveling northbound on Cottonwood, attempted to turn onto Reese and collided with the man.

CHP says the man had no lights on his scooter. He's been transported to Kern Medical with major injuries.

Drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors at this time. Traffic was temporarily impacted on Reese Avenue.
