A Kent State University student is recovering after being struck by a car while crossing S.R. 59 in Kent Tuesday evening.

Zhengliang Feng, 24, of Kent, was struck by an SUV driven by Richard Lebeau, 57, of Stow, around 6:20 p.m. Tuesday as he reportedly stood in an eastbound left-turn lane near Holly Park Apartments and Acme Fresh Market in the 1700 block of East Main Street, according to a police report.

Kent Police Lt. Jim Prusha said no charges have been filed against the driver at this time. Feng was not in a crosswalk at the time of the accident.

Feng suffered unspecified, "incapacitating" injuries in the accident, according to police. Blood on the pavement was observed by officers.

Feng was initially transported to Robinson Memorial Hospital, according to police, and then transferred to Akron City Hospital.

Feng, a senior at Kent State, is a resident of one of the nearby apartment complexes.
