LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An auto-pedestrian accident on Lufkin's Davisville Road that left a 23-year-old man injured Wednesday is now under investigation as a possible aggravated assault, according to a Lufkin Police Department spokesman.

'The officer will follow up with the pedestrian to attempt to get his account of the incident and determine if the driver intentionally drove into the pedestrian, or if the pedestrian did jump on the vehicle," Detective J.B. Smith, a spokesman for the Lufkin Police Department, said in an e-mail. "If she intentionally hit him, the incident will be investigated as an aggravated assault."

Smith said Kiana Anderson, 20, of Lufkin, told police that the pedestrian, Kevin Colquitt, 23, of Lufkin intentionally jumped onto and damaged her Honda Civic.

"The pedestrian received an abrasion injury to his leg and was transported by ambulance to Memorial Hospital, but he did not provide the investigating officer any details concerning the incident."

The accident occurred in the 2400 block of Davisville Road, according to Cpl. Nick Malone of the Lufkin Police Department. Colquitt was conscious with limited communication before an ambulance took him away.

Anderson was cited for no insurance.
