An Onamia man was injured Saturday after "staggering down the centerline" of Highway 169 and being struck by a car, according to the Minnesota State Patrol.

Eric R. Kimmons, 26, was walking down the middle of the road at 11:18 p.m. in Mille Lacs County when a vehicle driven by Thomas F. Merimonti, 74, of Aitkin, swerved to avoid Kimmons, according to reports.

Merimonti struck Kimmons with the side mirror.

Kimmons was transported to a Princeton hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Alcohol was detected on him, according to the state patrol.
