DEWEY BEACH, Del. -

A man is in critical condition after being hit by a Delaware State Trooper's cruiser in Dewey Beach, authorities say.

The accident happened early Sunday morning along Coastal Highway, near Rogers Avenue.

Police say the man was walking down the highway, stumbling between the shoulder and right lane, when he was hit.

The officer stopped his vehicle and performed CPR until medical crews arrived.

The pedestrian, identified in an Associated Press story as Brian McDermott of Bryn Mawr, Pa., was flown to Christiana Hospital.

Police say their preliminary investigation shows the man was drinking alcohol before the accident.
