Police believe the male passenger from the stationary car was changing a tyre at the time of the collision.

The 27-year-old St Albans man was trapped between the car and a roadside barrier sustaining serious leg injuries.

The female driver of the car, who was standing on the roadway at the time of the collision, was not injured.
