Man Sent to Hospital After Hit and Run Accident

After trying to stop his wife from leaving after an argument, a man was sent to the hospital Saturday when he was hit by her car.

Officials with the Angelina County Sheriff's Department say the accident happened on Kay Drive off highway 69 north near Central.

Officers say 21-year-old Brandon Smith allegedly ran into the road and either jumped on or was hit by the car as 18-year-old Lindsay Gilmore drove away. She was eventually pulled over by sheriff's deputies.

Smith was released from Lufkin's Memorial Hospital. Officers say charges are pending until the investigation is complete.
