A 95-year-old driver hit a 92-year-old pedestrian Saturday evening in Costa Mesa, sending the younger man to the hospital for head trauma.Driver Robert Tidd was going west on Baker Street in a 1993 Oldsmobile when he hit the pedestrian. Costa Mesa police told City News Service that the pedestrian was not in the crosswalk, and that Tidd was cooperative, unimpaired and released after questioning.

An ambulance took the pedestrian to Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, where he is being treated. We're wishing him a speedy recovery.
