Two men were struck by a car Monday night while crossing a Marietta road from opposite directions, police said.

The incident occurred about 7:45 p.m. at the intersection of Canton Road and Elizabeth Street, Marietta police spokesman Officer Chuck McPhilamy said. The men attempted to cross from opposite sides of the street when they both were struck by a 2007 Toyota Camry driving west on Canton Road.

One of the pedestrians, identified as 45-year-old Michael Milner, was injured in the crash but is expected to survive, McPhilamy said. The other man, 34-year-old Jarod Robinson, suffered life-threatening injuries. He was taken to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where he remains in serious condition.

The driver of the Camry, a 25-year-old Marietta man, called 911 to report the wreck.

No charges have been filed, but investigators are still working to determine whether the men were in the crosswalk at the time. It’s also unclear who had the right of way, McPhilamy said.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed the incident to call investigators at 770-794-5384.
