MINNEAPOLIS -- A Minnesota Department of Transportation worker hit by a car on I-94 Sunday night is speaking out from his hospital bed.

KARE 11 spoke with Ken Moreau by phone Monday morning and he went into detail about what he could remember.

Moreau didn't know anything about the open bottle police found or that the man was driving without a license and without insurance, according to the police report.

Moreau says he parked his MnDOT vehicle to the side of the road to pick up a box spring. He says he knew it would take several trips to pick up, but he was hit on the first.

From his hospital bed at North Memorial, Moreau says doctors told him he'll probably be at the hospital for about a week. He says, he remembers seeing a flash of light, and the next thing he knew he went flying.

"I flew for about 50 feet, 40,45, 50 feet, and I rotated when I was in the air," said Moreau.

He says he suffered a fractured hip, broke his fibula in three places and damaged his clavicle, and is currently not able to walk.

"I was confused. I have road rash on the back of my head, on my face, on my back," said Moreau.

"I believe the driver did stop," said Moreau.

Police arrested and booked an Oakdale man on charges including careless driving and giving false information to police.
