A man who was just trying to paint stripes on the road, lands in the hospital.
He was struck by a passing truck as he was working in a coned-off construction zone east of S. Babcock St. and Malabar Road in Palm Bay.
"A white Chevy pickup truck entered the work lane, which was closed, and driving erratically and hit the worker who was working behind the stationary truck," said Andrew Pidgeon with Palm Bay Police Department.
The man suffered serious injuries including compound fractures to both legs. He was transported to Holmes Regional Medical Center.
