A man was hospitalized Tuesday with non-life-threatening injuries after police said he was struck by a car as he walked on Route 25A in Mount Sinai.

Suffolk County police said the accident occurred at 6:37 a.m. and forced the closure of eastbound Route 25A at Crystal Brook Hollow Road.

The road has since been reopened, police said.

The identity of the injured pedestrian has not been released, but police said the victim was male and that he was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The injuries were first thought to be serious, police said. Police said the driver, a woman, had her 1-year-old child in the car at the time of the crash -- and that she remained at the scene.

The driver was not charged.
