CORRIGAN, TX (KTRE) - A 20-year-old man was injured in an auto-pedestrian incident on US Highway 287 in Corrigan early Wednesday morning.

Corrigan Police Chief Darrell Gibson said that the hit-and-run incident occurred at about 1 a.m. Wednesday. Two Corrigan PD officers found Curtis Shanks lying in the road and in obvious pain.

After an ambulance arrived on the scene, emergency personnel decided that Shanks needed to be airlifted to a Tyler hospital for treatment of his injuries, Gibson said.

Gibson said his officers believe Shanks was walking from his job at a gas station on U.S. Highway 59 South to his home on the east side of Corrigan when he was hit by a vehicle.

The Corrigan Police Department is looking for a gray or silver Hyundai that will be missing its front passenger mirror and may have damage to its front end.

Anyone with any information should call the Corrigan Police Department at (936) 398-2551.
