Sherman Police are investigating a possible hit and run wreck after an injured man and a damaged bicycle were found on a roadway early Sunday morning.
At about midnight Saturday night, officers were dispatched to the 5000 block of Texoma Parkway when a caller saw a bicycle in the middle of the roadway and the injured man lying in the grass on the side of the road. Sherman Police Sgt. D.M. Hampton said the man was bleeding and had swelling above his left eye, but there did not appear to be additional injuries.
Hampton said police found that the back wheel of the bike was heavily damaged and there was a section of rim detached from the bike. Police also found pieces of a black bumper, but Hampton said they were not sure if it was already at the scene from a previous wreck or if it came off the suspect’s vehicle.
When police questioned the 45-year-old man, Hampton said the man wasn’t able to tell police which way he was riding or what happened. Hampton said the man was not very cooperative, so police were not able to obtain many details, including what kind of vehicle may have hit him.
The man was transported to the Texoma Medical Center, and was treated for his injuries, which Hampton noted were not life threatening. A police report was filed for accident involving injury, and the investigation is ongoing.
