CINCINNATI – A 64-year-old man suffered life-threatening injuries when he was struck by two cars while crossing Harrison Avenue in South Fairmount Thursday night, according to police.

Police arrested one of the drivers and charged him with leaving the scene.

The victim, Anthony Generette, was in the crosswalk at 1930 Harrison Ave., walking against the walk light, when he was hit by Nicholas Watson’s car about 10:05 p.m., police said.

Watson, 40, was arrested Friday.

While Generette was lying in street, he was hit a second time by D’onna Curtis-Gaskins, 34, according to police.

Generette was listed in critical condition at University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Watson had minor injuries. D’onna Curtis-Gaskins was not hurt.

Excessive speed and impairment do not appear to be factors, police said. Witnesses are asked to contact the Cincinnati Police Traffic Unit at 513-352-2514.
