    Police in Bow, New Hampshire, on Monday responded to a motor vehicle accident involving a pedestrian.

    A preliminary investigation indicates 45-year-old Brian Szarka, with no permanent address, was walking in the southbound lane of Route 3A, when a snowplow driver swerved to avoid Szarka. 

    The investigation has not revealed if Szarka was struck by the plow. 

    There was a light-colored minivan following the snowplow that left the scene. It is unknown if the minivan was involved in the accident. 

    Despite the action of the driver of a tractor-trailer following the minivan, Szarka was struck in the foot by one wheel of the tractor-trailer. 

    Szarka remains in critical condition. 

    It does not appear any charges will be brought against either of the commercial vehicle operators.
