One person was taken to a hospital with serious injuries after being struck by a car in Austintown late Sunday.

Austintown police, state troopers and EMS personnel were called out around 8 p.m. Sunday.

Mahoning Avenue was blocked off near the former Pizza Hut for some time as medical personnel helped the victim.

State Troopers say the victim was awake and responsive while being taken to the hospital.

Troopers are talking with that person at the hospital to learn more about the incident.

Mahoning Avenue has since reopened.
