As of this evening, veteran East Texas radio newsman John Sims remained in the intensive care unit at UT Health East Texas in Tyler after being hit by a vehicle. Sims suffered a severe brain injury as a result of an auto-pedestrian crash that happened Tuesday around 8:30 a.m. on Front St. at Bonner Ave. “John Sims is one of the kindest, gentlest souls I’ve ever known,” said Paul Gleiser, KTBB owner. “And he’s also a consummate professional.”
