Man Charged After Fatal Hit and Run in St. Louis County
As a pedestrian, you rarely consider that you might one day be the victim of a hit and run accident in St. Louis. Most accidents occur on the highways and some occur on the busy streets of St. Louis, but not many of them involve pedestrians. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case, and one man is being charged with a felony for leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident after he hit a fifty-year-old pedestrian on Lindbergh Boulevard.
According to the news article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, the man was pronounced dead at the scene. When the accident took place, he had been standing in a marked crosswalk. More charges may be filed at a later time, and the driver actually turned himself in to police.
