Man struck while changing tire off I-185; no serious injuries

A man was struck in the arm by a passing vehicle as he changed a tire just off Interstate 185 early today, Columbus police said.

The injury was not life threatening, Capt. Renee McAneny said.

The incident happened between 4-5 a.m. The man was on a ramp just off the Interstate in the Buena Vista Road area when a passing vehicle’s mirror struck him in the arm, the captain said.

The other vehicle stopped and police were called.

“He went to The Medical Center, but we had to talk him into going,” McAneny added.
