Pedestrian Injured in Hit-and-run Accident on Loop 323 in Tyler, TX

Tyler, TX -- March 3, 2023, one person was injured due to an accident where a vehicle hit them along Loop 323, then left the scene.

Preliminary details given by Tyler Police officials say that the incident happened just after midnight in the area of Loop 323 and 34th Street.

Right now, the exact cause of the accident is unclear. Authorities say only that a vehicle somehow hit someone that was changing a flat tire along the roadway. That vehicle then left the scene, but police say they tracked the vehicle down and identified the driver.

The victim was taken to a hospital with reportedly serious injuries. The suspect driver may face charges for accident involving injury or death. Right now, no further information can be confirmed.

After these kinds of incidents, I know many people share the same thought I have: why'd they leave the scene? It's usually not as simple as panic. There's usually something specific they didn't want police to find out about. One possibility, for example, is drunk driving, which just so happens to be a common factor both in hit-and-runs and accidents in the early morning hours.

Is that something authorities are looking into? Taking steps toward holding a driver accountable for leaving an accident scene is obviously important, but those affected by incidents like this deserve to know they're getting all the facts.
