A young Bend man who was hit by a vehicle in Bend Monday night was listed in critical condition Tuesday at St. Charles in Bend. 
 
Bend Police say 20 year old Pedro Huerta was trying to cross Reed Market Road in a dimly lit area that was not near a crosswalk.  It happened around 10:16 Monday night.
 
Police also say he was reportedly wearing dark clothing.
Bend Police Sgt. Todd Fletcher urges all pedestrians and cyclists to be extra careful around cars and trucks. 1110 KBND news spoke with Sgt. Fletcher Tuesday morning.
 
"it's one of those things where people who even if they believe they have the right of way - it's not a good idea for pedestrians to step out in front of a moving vehicle. they're going to loose that collision every time- it doesn't really matter who's at fault...the pedestrian is going to suffer the greatest injury."
 
The driver, who police are not identifying was not injured and not cited in the crash.  Bend Police also say speed and alcohol were not factors in the incident.
