Man Hit By Vehicle, Ticketed For Jaywalking

A man is recovering after he was hit trying to cross a street--and he's the one getting the ticket.

Police say the man was jaywalking Wednesday afternoon. He was crossing Platte near Circle in Colorado Springs, in the middle of the block, when he was hit by a van.

His injuries are believed to be serious, but he's expected to survive.

One lane of eastbound Platte was closed at Arrawanna Street for a few hours.
