Critically Injured Soldier Improving, Suspect's Vehicle Found

A follow up on last Friday's hit-and-run accident in Tyler.

Police say they have found the vehicle believed to have hit an East Texan who recently returned home from service in Iraq.

Matthew Roberts, 22, was critically injured. He is now in fair condition at Tyler's ETMC.

The former Air Force load master was riding his motorcycle in North Tyler, when witnesses say he was hit by an SUV running a stop sign.

Police say they believe the SUV was stolen from a local detail shop. They are now working on leads for a suspect.
