9) CENTRAL: Crash w/Injuries – 1:00 a.m.  Officers were sent to the intersection of N Henry St at Langdon St for a motor vehicle versus pedestrian crash.  Upon arrival, officers located a pedestrian (22-year-old WM) down with what initially appeared to be significant injuries.  The driver (18-year-old UM) remained on scene, was cooperative, and showed no signs of impairment.  The driver consented to a blood draw, search of his vehicle, and search of his vehicle's black box.  Initial statements were that the vehicle was traveling approximately 40 mph outbound on Langdon St when it struck the pedestrian in the crosswalk.  The pedestrian was transported to a local hospital with multiple lacerations and neurological damage.  Traffic specialist on-scene.  Investigation continuing.
