By CLINT FOSTER

A pedestrian was hit by a driver in Mineral Wells around 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning, and remains in the hospital.

According to a Mineral Wells Police Department crash report, Cole Dewayne Dow, 21, was walking south in the southbound lane of Farm-to-Market Road 1821 in the darkness of the early morning. He was approximately two feet from the center turn lane when a car came up behind him, also traveling south.

The driver of the blue 1994 Chevrolet Astro van stated he could not see Dow in the darkness quickly enough to react. Dow was struck with the left front end of the van.

Air Evac Lifeteam transported Dow to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth where he is reportedly in “good condition,” as of Wednesday evening according to a hospital spokesperson.
