Hit-and-Run America, Vol. DCCCIII

An ongoing collection of unsolved hit-and-run cases, with a focus on car/pedestrian incidents, from across the country since Jan. ‘010. If you know something about any of these incidents, or one that I’ve missed, do the right thing and call the police, even anonymously. After a respite from keeping the list, it restarted in January 2019, highlighting one case a day. If there’s a case you’ve seen that deserves highlighting, drop me a line at hickey@brianphickey.com.

10956. More than a month after a pickup truck was driven into a mostly Black crowd in Downtown Madison, causing serious injuries to one woman, the Dane County District Attorney’s office has yet to file formal charges against the white driver arrested in the case, which some in the community are calling a hate crime.

10962. PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — About 100 bicyclists hit the road Sunday riding in memory of a local cyclist who was recently killed by a hit-and-run driver.

The 32-year-old Lindsay from Havertown was riding his bike on Ridge Avenue earlier this month when he was struck and killed by a driver who hit him and did not stop.

10963. It’s been weeks since 33-year-old Timothy Henderson was rushed to the hospital. He was the victim of a hit and run back on June 22. His injuries are so severe, he’s now fighting through brain trauma. “He’s able to talk and he knows me as a mom, but he’s not able to put the words the way he wants to, so he gets frustrated. He’s angry, he’s in a lot of pain,” says Yolanda Brooks, Henderson’s mother.

10964. “My other son and my dog made it across the street. The car sped up, hit Matthew, he flew in the air and then they ran over this whole side of his body,” Snapp said.
