Altus man hits two workers in construction zone

ALTUS, Okla._The Altus Police Department is investigating after two workers were hit by a truck Thursday morning.

Altus police say a 66-year-old driver in a 2008 Toyota pickup was eastbound on Broadway at 9:21 a.m. Thursday when the driver veered to the right into a construction area, which was marked off with traffic cones, and hit a worker with the truck’s side mirror. The truck then continued east and hit a second worker. The two men were pouring a concrete entrance to Napa Auto Parts at 2108 E Broadway.

The worker who was hit with the truck’s mirror refused medical treatment, but the second worker who was hit by the truck was taken to Jackson County Memorial Hospital for his injuries and later released.

The driver was not injured, but was taken to the hospital on suspicion of driving under the influence. He submitted to blood tests at the hospital. The driver cited and released on his own recognizance due to medical conditions.
