EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A man is in jail after police say he was involved in a hit and run in Evansville.

It happened just before 7 at West Franklin and Fulton Ave.

An affidavit states a witness saw a car blow through a red light on Franklin Street and hit another vehicle.

It shows the driver, later identified as Cody Cowan, started walking east on Franklin Street.

Authorities say they stopped and detained Cowan.

Officers say they could smell alcohol on him and was too drunk to drive a car.

An affidavit shows the victim has a broken neck and will be having surgery.
