    An 80-year-old man was hit by a vehicle Saturday as he was crossing a busy street in Roxbury, Boston police say.

    Authorities say the elderly man sustained a head injury and was brought to the hospital with "what appears to be" life-threatening injuries. He was later reported to be in stable condition, however, and is expected to be OK.

    The incident happened at the corner of Ruggles and Tremont streets, near Northeastern University.

    The intersection remained closed for a large part of the evening as officers investigated, including testing the brakes of the black sedan to determine the speed the vehicle was traveling.
