Update 10:19 am:

(WBIR) Police said a man hit by a car in downtown Knoxville Tuesday afternoon is still in the hospital.

Crews took Thomas Riley, 33, of Knoxville to the University of Tennessee Medical Center for life-threatening injuries after a car struck him near the World's Fair Park shortly after 12:15 p.m. A police officer said he saw Riley jumping in between traffic on Clinch Avenue when a car accidentally hit him at the Henley Street intersection.

Officials said they haven't filed any charges because of Riley's current medical condition. On Tuesday, police said the driver won't be charged because the victim was allegedly cutting across the road in front of a "no pedestrian crossing" sign, which is underneath the pedestrian bridge between the Knoxville Convention center and the UT Conference Center.

No word on Riley's condition.
