MARIETTA, Ohio (WTAP) - Marietta Police say the driver of a car that hit a man on January 13 has been cited.

Police Captain Ryan Huffman said Friday that surveillance video from a local business helped determine who was at fault in the crash.

He said the driver was cited for failure to yield. She was not hurt in the wreck, but the male pedestrian was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries.

A person is recovering in the hospital Friday after being hit by a car in Marietta Thursday night.

Marietta Police Captain Ryan Huffman confirmed Friday morning that a male pedestrian was hit at the intersection of 2nd and Putnam Streets around 6:05 p.m.

Huffman said police are still trying to determine what happened and are working with an area business to try to get surveillance video of the incident.

The driver of the car was not hurt.

Huffman said no charges have been filed as of Friday morning.
