Picketing Goodyear Worker Hit By Car

7 weeks into the strike, Tempers flared tonight outside the Tyler Goodyear Plant. A picketing steelworker was taken to the hospital after he was hit by a worker trying to leave the plant.

The union worker hit, identified as Kenneth Robbins was treated and released, but told KLTV 7  he severely sprained his shoulder.

Workers say the driver of the car was 1 of 2 workers who have crossed the picket line at Goodyear since the strike began.

Company officials released a statement about the incident. They say they are cooperating with law enforcement, but at this time they do not expect any criminal charges to be filed.
