An Albion man is in guarded condition after he was hit by a car early Sunday morning in Clarkson.

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office tells News10NBC they were called to Lake Road in Clarkson around 3 a.m. Sunday morning. When they arrived they found 22-year-old Matthew Adema had been hit by a driver while crossing the road.

Deputies says the driver told them that Adema walked in front of his vehicle and he had no time to avoid him. Investigators also say they noticed a strong odor of alcohol on Adema's breath.

Adema was transported to Strong Memorial Hospital with multiple injuries, including a head injury. He is currently listed in guarded condition.

Deputies say the driver was not intoxicated and was not ticketed.
