CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (CBS4) – A man was injured after getting struck while trying to change a flat tire in Castle Rock Saturday night.

The 29-year-old was parked in the acceleration lane near Founders Parkway at Metzler when a driver hit him from behind.

The man was rushed to the hospital but is expected to recover.

The speed limit is 45 miles an hour where the crash happened.
