Man hit by pickup while crossing Gosford with shopping cart

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A man was hit by a pickup Tuesday night while crossing Gosford Road. He was pushing a shopping cart.

Police said the 3700 block of Gosford is not well lit, and the man, 70-year-old Adolph Henry, was wearing dark clothing, so it's likely the truck's driver did not see him until it was too late.

Henry was hit by the northbound pickup just after 6 p.m.

Henry was hospitalized in critical condition, but he was in stable, according to Lt. Jason Townsend.
