A male pedestrian was hit by a Nissan sedan on El Camino Real at about 5:18 p.m. Tuesday across from Encina Avenue -- causing a rush-hour traffic jam.
Officials reported that the man suffered head lacerations but was conscious and talking. He was initially treated at the scene and then taken to Stanford Hospital.
He had apparently been jaywalking across El Camino, going from Stanford University towards Encina.
The farthest two southbound lanes were closed as police investigated the accident. Shortly before 6 p.m., officers were interviewing the car's driver and passenger and marking off the accident scene.
