A tow truck driver was seriously injured on Christmas Eve while working at the scene of a single-vehicle crash on Colo. 52.

According to Colorado State Patrol, a woman crashed her blue Jeep into a guardrail near 115th Street at around 6:20 p.m. The 50-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, Trooper Gary Cutler said.

Later, a 51-year-old tow truck driver working at the scene was struck by a four-passenger Honda. The tow truck driver was taken to Good Samaritan Medical Center with serious bodily injuries, Cutler said. He was still at the hospital on Thursday afternoon, according to hospital staff.

The driver of the Honda has not yet been charged in the incident, but Cutler said that charges are pending. The State Patrol doesn’t believe alcohol or drugs were involved in the second crash.
