A 54-year-old man was hit by a car on Nansemond Parkway Sunday morning after he exited his own car after narrowly avoiding a deer.

The man ran off the road while trying to dodge the deer, city spokeswoman Debbie George said. He flagged down a vehicle and was standing in the middle of the road talking to that driver when he was struck by another vehicle.

George said the man was wearing dark clothing.
