Syndicated columnist Robert Novak was cited with a traffic violation after apparently striking a pedestrian in Washington, D.C., the Politico reported.

Novak, also a FOX News contributor, was cited for failing to yield to the right of way. He had appeared on FOX earlier in the morning.

“I didn’t know I hit him,” Novak said, according to the Politico. Novak said he was a block away from the scene of the accident when a bicyclist stopped him to tell him he'd struck someone. The accident occurred around 10 a.m.

The male pedestrian was taken to George Washington University hospital with minor injuries.
