Police Investigating Fatal Wreck

Investigators say it will be at least a few more days before they know what caused a fatal car wreck yesterday morning.

A Tyler man was killed after being hit by a car. The accident happened at the intersection of 8th Sreet and Old Jacksonville Hwy. Police say 69-year-old Willie Hunter was outside the London Shop, when he was hit by a man driving a Volkswagen Beetle. Hunter was pinned between the car and the shop's wall.

The driver of the beetle, 72-year-old Chester Vaughn, was taken to the hospital. He's been upgraded from serious to good condition. Police say a medical problem may have caused him to swerve off the road.
