CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

One man was sent to the hospital with serious injuries just before 6 a.m. Wednesday after being struck by a vehicle on I-37 near Navigation.

"I hear there was a leg injury, and some possible head injuries," said Lt. Chris McClure of the Corpus Christi Police Department.

The man had lost control of his truck and struck the median on I-37. He got out of his vehicle to assess the damage as a CCPD patrol car pulled over to help him out. That's when another motorist, also driving a truck, lost control and struck the median, hitting the first driver in the process.

Police said the second driver may have been speeding and simply wasn't paying attention to the traffic ahead of him. He will likely be ticketed.
