La Mirada-  A man is in a local hospital in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle while crossing a busy roadway during the morning commute Tuesday.

The man described as being elderly had been crossing Rosecrans Av at Jalon Rd near the Panera's in the La Mirada Theatre Center when he was struck at about 6:28 a.m.

An unnamed Sheriff's official told La Mirada NewsBeat that the injured man was in the hospital fighting for his life. The driver of the car remained at the scene and appeared to be extremely distraught.

Deputies quickly closed traffic in both eastbound lanes from La Mirada Blvd to Adelfa Drive for close to three hours to allow investigators to conduct a thorough cause investigation and a city crew to clean the roadway.
