Pedestrian hit in evening accident

LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- For the second time in 48 hours, Gregg County authorities are investigating someone being hit by a car. Longview Police say this latest one happened just after 6 o'clock Wednesday at the intersection of Gilmer road and Dundee road.

Police say a male pedestrian apparently stepped into oncoming traffic at the intersection and was hit. The man was taken to a local hospital with serious but not life threatening injuries. Police say the man was wearing all black, and that may have contributed to the accident, as he was at a dark intersection.

Police say no tickets were issued against the driver in this accident.
