MIDLAND - An attempted hit and run fell short for one man.

Just before 8 a.m. Tuesday morning, DPS Troopers responded to a crash on I-20 at mile marker 142.

Deputies say a driver ran into the back of a big rig causing him to spin out and land in the median.

That's when authorities say the driver took off running.

The driver, who was later identified as 18 year-old Ryan Michael Stevens, was eventually caught and taken to the hospital.

The driver of the big rig was uninjured.

No word on if Stevens will be ticketed.
