COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -  A Muscogee County Prison inmate remains in Intensive Care at the Medical Center tonight.

Thirty-eight-year-old Michael Murray was struck by a car while collecting trash cans along Reese Road.

It happened Monday when he was on a sanitation detail.

The prison's warden says Murray was standing on the back of the trash truck when a speeding driver hit the truck, trapping him in between the two.

Both of his legs were broken and one of his legs has been amputated.

The driver of the car has been charged with following too close.
