The incident occurred about 5 p.m. in the 1000 block of Mississippi Street. According to an accident report, Derrick Betts, 24, of Linwood, told police he was driving south on Mississippi when he saw two men apparently fighting.

Emergency responders took Tsosie to the hospital but witnessed no external injuries, the report said. Tsosie was listed in fair condition at the hospital Tuesday, a nurse supervisor said.
