Man standing in center lane of Colfax hit by Jeep in Denver Monday morning

DENVER - A man who was crossing East Colfax Avenue near St. Paul Street was hit by a Jeep Monday morning.

The man was not in a crosswalk and was standing in the center turn lane when he was hit by the Jeep.

Eastbound lanes of Colfax are closed just before St. Paul while police investigate.

The driver of the Jeep told 7NEWS he stopped because he was having issues with sun glare, and didn't even know he had hit anyone.

The pedestrian was awake and alert when he was transported to the hospital at about 8 a.m. Investigators said he has serious injuries.

It's not clear whether the driver will face charges.
