A construction worker hit by a truck while walking in a construction zone on Sunday night is recovering.
It happened around 8:45 p.m. on the Creek Turnpike near Yale.
The Oklahoma Highway Patrol said 18-year-old Coleton Edwards was working in that area when a truck backed into him. Edwards was taken to the hospital with head and back injuries.
The airbags in the truck did not come out and the driver walked away without any injuries. Construction has been underway for more than a year and FOX23 has learned it should wrap up in November or December.
