A construction worker on Yelm Highway was struck by a vehicle Wednesday afternoon, according to Lacey police.
The man, who is in his 40s, was alert and talking to medical personnel before he was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital in Olympia, Sgt. Jaime Newcomb said.
He suffered a head laceration and may have broken a bone, but his injuries were not considered life-threatening, Newcomb said.
About 2 p.m. Wednesday, the man was working in the median in the 4500 block of Yelm Highway Southeast when he stepped off a curb and was struck by a vehicle.
A woman in her 70s was behind the wheel, Newcomb said. She was not cited because speed was not a factor and she showed no signs of impairment, he said.
