Police say fatal hit-and-run was no accident

Just after 7:30 on Saturday evening, a 66-year-old man was killed when he was struck while on foot by a full sized pickup truck. Law enforcement officials in Flint, where the incident took place, have asserted that this was not an accidental hit-and-run, but that the driver of the pickup truck intentionally ran the man down.

The driver initially fled the scene, but turned himself on Tuesday and was booked into Genesee County jail where he awaits charges. The daughter of the man who was killed told the Flint Journal that she is glad that the man will have an opportunity to seek justice after the death of her father.

It is not clear exactly what sequence of events led to the fatal hit-and-run, according to the 42 year-old daughter. Police officials have indicated that the pickup truck driver and the 66-year-old man had been involved in an argument at a house near the scene of the incident.

The man had been an exceptional football player at Flint Central High School. Graduating in 1963, the man continued to play for a handful of semi-professional football teams in the area. He had worked for 36 years at General Motors, retiring in 1999.

Dealing with the loss of a loved one is difficult under any circumstance. Disease and unavoidable accidents too often take loved ones away before their time. These situations are tragic but in some way comprehensible. It can be all the more difficult when the intentional actions of another lead to the death of a loved one.
