*Update*
Good news -- the victim's injuries were not as critical as initially believed. He was determined to have non-life-threatening injuries. It appears that the vehicles on Saxon Boulevard had a green light at the time of the crash, and no charges are pending at this time.

MALE PEDESTRIAN, 52, STRUCK BY SUV, AIRLIFTED IN CRITICAL CONDITION

Sheriff’s deputies were investigating an accident Tuesday night involving a sport utility vehicle traveling eastbound on Saxon Boulevard when it struck a male pedestrian near Finland Drive in Deltona.

The SUV was then struck by a Ford F150. Both drivers were transported to a hospital in Orange City for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. The pedestrian was identified as Timothy Dixon, 52, a transient. He was flown by helicopter to Central Florida Hospital in Sanford as a trauma alert patient with critical injuries considered life-threatening.

Deputies were investigating the crash to determine who was at fault.  It was unclear whether Dixon was walking in the crosswalk.

The accident occurred just before 8 p.m. More information will be released when it becomes available.
