A man was taken to the hospital Monday with life-threatening injuries after he was struck by a Tesla while he was grabbing tools to fix a flat tire on his vehicle in Boulder.

He is now in stable condition, said Dionne Waugh, spokesperson for Boulder police.

About 1:20 p.m. Monday, Boulder officers were called to the intersection of South Broadway and Ash Avenue for a report of a crash, Waugh said.

The 61-year-old man was driving an Acura sedan and stopped in the far right southbound lane of Broadway when his vehicle got a flat fire, Waugh said. He was at the back of the vehicle retrieving tools from his trunk when he was struck from behind by a Tesla Model 3.

He was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. The male Tesla driver stayed on scene and is cooperating with the investigation, Waugh said.

South Broadway and Rayleigh Road temporarily closed after the crash and reopened a few hours later.

Charges are pending, and the crash is still under investigation, Waugh said.

The Boulder Police Department is asking anyone with information about the crash to call officer Alex Kicera at 303-441-3333 or 720-724-5938 and reference case 22-00048.
