A woman was changing a tire in the HOV lane when she was struck by a pick-up truck.

"The driver of the truck that hit that vehicle and another occupant fled on foot into the city streets and a short time later, a male and a female were take into custody," said Carrick Cook with the Arizona Department of Public Safety.
