A Purvis man was struck and injured in an accident on the last night of Cruisin' The Coast.

According to our sister station WLOX, 61-year-old Warren Hammett of Leland was driving eastbound on Highway 90 when he attempted a "burnout" in his 2010 Cadillac CTS-V around 10:30 p.m. Hammett lost control of his car, and plowed into a crowd of bystanders.

According to Sergeant Damien McDaniel, Gulfport Police Department's Public Information Officer, Joseph Daniel Little, 27, was sitting on the tailgate of a pickup truck when he was hit by Hammet's car.

WLOX reported that four others were taken to Garden Park Medical Center and treated for minor to moderate injuries.
