MILLCREEK — A 19-year-old man is in critical condition after he was hit by a tow truck while lying in the road in Millcreek early Sunday morning, officials said.

The man was lying in the street at 4070 S. Main Street about 1:30 a.m. when the truck hit him. There is some evidence that he may have been assaulted before being hit by the truck, Unified police detective Kevin Mallory said.

The man was hospitalized in critical condition soon after.

The truck driver is cooperating with police, and there does not appear to be any impairment on the truck driver's part, Mallory said.

Police do not yet know why the 19-year-old was in the road when he was hit.

This story will be updated if more information becomes available.
