LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - One person is in critical condition after being struck by a vehicle early Sunday morning on I-27.

Police responded to the 3800 block of I-27 just after 6 a.m. where officers located Richard Salazar, 42, near a concrete wall on the east side of the northbound exit ramp to 34th Street. Salazar was taken to UMC with critical injuries.

Investigators determined Salazar pulled his vehicle over to the right side of I-27 due to a flat tire. Investigators believe Salazar got out of his car and was walking northbound on the 34th Street off-ramp when he was struck by a pick-up truck.

The driver of the pick-up stopped to render aid. No arrests have been made at this time.
