Man Hit By Car, Killed

A Tyler man was killed Sunday after being hit by a car.

The accident happened around 11:30 a.m. at the intersection of 8th St. and Old Jacksonville Hwy. Authorities say 69-year-old Willie Hunter was outside the "London Shop" tending to a garden hose when he was hit by a man driving a Volkswagen Beetle.

The accident pinned Hunter between the car and the shop's wall. The driver of the beetle, 72-year-old Chester Vaughn, was taken to ETMC in Tyler where he was listed in serious condition Sunday night.

Police say a medical problem may have caused the man to swerve off the road.
