An 86-year old man is in the hospital after being hit by an SUV on Monday.

Neil Leapley of Onawa tried to cross Iowa avenue in Onawa on his scooter, before being hit by another car. The avenue is a four lane road with 2 lanes each, traffic was stopped in the left lanes as Leapley tried to cross. Once he got to the right lane, traffic there was already moving, leading to the collision. He was not trying to cross at a legal cross walk.

Leapley was transported to Burgess hospital with no word on his condition as of yet.
