A sewer cleaner is in the hospital after he was struck by a car on Houston's southside.

The worker was hit on Old Spanish Trail near Staffordshire. Police say an approaching pickup truck waited until the last minute to change lanes, so the victim tried to get out of the truck's way when he was hit. He was seriously injured, but is expected to recover.

Another worker and the pickup driver were not injured. No word on any possible charges.
