John Andrews Jr. Injured in Alleged Hit-and-Run on Old Elderville Rd in Longview, TX

Longview, TX -- December 18, 2021, 42-year-old pedestrian John Andrews Jr. was injured in a possible hit-and-run on Old Elderville Road in Longview.

Authorities say the incident happened around midnight on the 3100 block of Old Elderville near Estes Parkway. Preliminary investigation and a statement provided by Andrews suggest he was walking on the east side of Old Elderville when he saw a vehicle, believed to be a maroon or black Crown Victoria, coming west directly toward him. He alleged he tried to jump out of the way but the vehicle clipped him in the right hip area and his tibia broke when he fell into a nearby ditch.

Andrews was transported to an area hospital for treatment of his injuries. The investigating officer learned from medical staff that there was no indication he had been struck on his right side. He maintained his story about being hit by a car, but added he had consumed three 40-oz malt beverages and smoked some marijuana over the prior few hours. He told police he was walking to a nearby store for another drink when he was hit.

Police issued a Be On Look Out (BOLO) for a possible hit-and-run vehicle.
