The state patrol was called just before 4pm Thursday to what was reported as a hit-and-run accident on Sparta Road, but the matter was turned over to the Wilkes Sheriff Office when it was determined the pedestrian was intentionally hit in what is now an assault with a deadly weapon. The man said he was walking along the road, saw the suspect drive by, and realized he was targeting him when the driver turned and chased him—eventually striking him.  Injuries were serious but not life-threatening.
