JAY — Police say they responded to Jay Peak Resort early Sunday morning after a pedestrian was struck by a 2006 Hyundai.

After an initial investigation, police say a 19-year-old Newport man was leaving work at Jay Peak at around 1 a.m. and traveling on Jay Peak Road.

The pedestrian, a Canadian citizen, was walking along the edge of the roadway and stopped to speak with another Jay Peak employee when he was struck from behind.

The man was transported to North Country Hospital by Newport Ambulance with what police say were “minor, non-life threatening injuries.”

The crash remains under investigation, but police say alcohol or other substances do not appear to be a factor.
