TYLER, TX - A man was rushed to the hospital after getting hit by a car around 12:30 am Friday at the highway 64 E. boat ramp on Lake Tyler.

The man says he and some family members met another guy earlier in the night and they had decided to meet at the boat ramp.

After some harsh comments from the new guy, the man and his family decided to leave.

He was taken to the hospital and he was treated for serious, but non life-threaten injuries.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5'0", 100 pounds and approximately 25-years-old. He was driving a white Jetta.
