One person was sent to the hospital following an early morning crash along the Northbound side of Interstate 37 near Navigation.

It happened around 5:30AM Wednesday when a stranded motorist got out to check on their vehicle. A Corpus Christi Police Officer pulled over the help out the driver, when a truck speeding by didn't see what was going on and hit the 26 year old man that was out of his vehicle.

The man was taken to the hospital for treatment. He is expected to be okay. There is no word if the driver of the truck will receive a citation for the accident.

Two lanes of I-37 had to be shut down for a couple of hours while crews cleared the scene. Those lanes have since been reopened.
