Police blocked off Luzerne Street at 10th Avenue for hours Thursday as officers investigated a man found unconscious there.

Police responded there about 8 p.m. and found the man with a significant head injury, city police Lt. Marty Crofton said on the scene. Emergency medical personnel took the man to Geisinger Community Medical Center for treatment.

Officers found debris that could indicate a vehicle hit the man, Crofton said. Police are investigating to determine exactly how he was injured.

Police are not identifying the man until they notify family, but the man is in his late 50s, Crofton said.
