Two people were struck on Godwin Boulevard Wednesday night, but both are expected to survive the ordeal.

City spokeswoman Diana Klink said a 79-year-old man, who lives nearby, reportedly walked into the path of oncoming traffic in the 2300 block of Godwin Boulevard, near its intersection with Route 460.

He was struck by a Honda operated by a 29-year-old female and was ground transported to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.
