    Default struck by

    Hello everyone.

    I'd like to ask about the meaning of 'struck by' in the dollowing context.

    Goodier led them down one of the wide corridors on the second level. The other units went in other directions. Vega struck by Brodeur and followed his lead.

    Are you sure the statement is 'struck by' and not 'stuck by'? Stuck by would make more sense in this context.

    Sure, Amigos4, it's my misprint, sorry for that, it should read 'stuck', not 'struck'.

    It means that he stayed with him, followed him.
