I didn't see it happen but I saw him laying in the road when I was on the bus to town dropping off a friend. Driver took a diversion up Cemetery Road since he was on the side going to town. Also a can (looked to be alcohol) in the road too. Then on the way back I was stuck on a bus on Cemetery Road for 40 minutes.

Oh dear, I hope he is ok. I saw the ambulances from the top of the hill and commented to my mate, that I bet somebody got knocked over.
I'm not familiar with the junction and when I went to cross it the other day, the same thing nearly happened to me.
The layout of the junction is pretty strange, and it isn't entirely clear that traffic runs both way on that section where the lights are.

Thoughts go out to the person injured and their family and I hope they make a full recovery.
