On 12-05-2011 at approximately 6:30 pm, Tyler Police Officers responded to a pedestrian accident in the 700 block of N. Palace. At the scene, officers located 29 year old Latosha Little of Tyler. Little advised that she was crossing N. Palace Street, walking east to west. She reached the center turn lane and was struck by a north bound vehicle that was traveling in the turn lane. Apparently the vehicle was preparing to make a left hand turn onto W. Bow Street. The vehicle struck little, rolling her onto the hood and then to the ground.
Little walked to the A&W grocery to use the phone, while the vehicle that struck her pulled into the parking lot. The vehicle was being driven by an elderly black male. When he was told that Little was calling the police, the driver of the vehicle left the scene. Little was unable to provide a detailed description of the suspect or his vehicle.
Little complained of lower back pain. She was transported to East Texas Medical Center Hospital by EMS.
Investigators are attempting to obtain video from surveilance cameras at the A&W Grocery. An update will be sent out if additional information becomes available.
