A 41-year-old Pawtucket man is hit by a car while he's changing his tire.

It happened Thursday night on Cottage Street in Pawtucket.

Police say the victim was taken to Rhode Island Hospital in critical condition.

"I saw the man in between the two cars," said Kim Davis, witness who adds "He got out to change his tire, was what he did, but he had his flashers on."

The female driver of the other car is co-operating with police.  No word on any charges.

Police aren't releasing the name of the victim.
