ASHLAND - Police believe an Ashland man was jaywalking across East Main Street near Mathews Avenue Sunday when he suffered significant injuries after being struck by an oncoming vehicle. 

Timothy Maust, 25, of Ashland sustained incapacitating injuries and was taken to University Hospital Samaritan Medical Center after he was hit by a car on the 600 block of East Main Street, near Luray Lanes, around 6:30 p.m. Sunday. 

According to an Ashland Police report, Maust was attempting to cross from the south side of the street to the north side in an area not marked as a crosswalk. 

Tammy Anderson, 51, of Brewster, told police she was driving east at a speed of about 25 miles per hour, which is the posted speed limit, when she struck Maust in her minivan.

The impact left Maust with serious injuries and destroyed Anderson's windshield, according to the police report. Anderson sustained minor injuries and was also taken to the hospital for treatment. 

Anderson told police she did not see Maust before the crash or have any indication he was about to cross the road. 

Police interviewed several witnesses, including onlookers who were mowing nearby and told police Maust did not look either direction before crossing the road. The mowers also said Anderson did not appear to be driving faster than the speed limit.
