An Auburn man has been ticketed following an accident Tuesday that injured a pedestrian.
Police said Friday that John Thurston, 80, of Auburn, was issued a traffic ticket for failure to yield right of way to pedestrians in a crosswalk.
The accident occurred after 3 p.m. Tuesday. Thurston was the driver of a pickup truck heading northbound on South Fulton Street. As he turned left onto East Genesee Street, he struck a 26-year-old pedestrian in the crosswalk.
The pedestrian, whose name wasn't released, was transported to Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse. He has been released from the hospital and is recovering from his injuries, police said.
