A Canfield man remains in the hospital several days after he was struck by a car.

Robert Zimmerman, 50, was standing in the southbound lane of Palmyra Road about 9:30 p.m. Monday when a car traveling in the northbound lane went left of center, striking him, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol in Canfield.

The accident is under investigation, and the driver, a 22-year-old Youngstown man, hasn’t been charged at this time, according to the highway patrol.
