Authorities responded to the 2800 block of FM 1417 on Wednesday night in response to a report of a hit-and-run accident. Police determined that five men had been walking south on the road, when a car clipped two of the men with its side mirror. In the course of the police investigation at the scene, the driver returned and told officers that he thought he had hit a sign. Sherman PD said the driver’s story was supported by evidence, and does not anticipate filing charges at this time. Officers said the victims appeared to be at least partially in the roadway. One man was transported to the emergency room with non-life-threatening injuries.
