Hit-And-Run America, Vol. DCCLXXXVI

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.


10622. A hit-and-run crash killed an 85-year-old pedestrian Thursday night, closing Waterman Road near Sheldon and Brown roads as officers investigated, according to the Elk Grove Police Department. The victim was identified Friday by the coroner’s office as Edward Villasenor of Elk Grove. Several TV stations reported that Villasenor, a former landscaping contractor, was celebrating his 49th wedding anniversary before being struck.


10623. MILWAUKEE — A family of four, including two children are now recovering at home after they were victims of a hit-and-run on Saturday night near Fiserv Forum.


10624. Marine Corps veterans Samuel Jackson of Norristown and Richard Dunn of Conshohocken never met, but one Marine uniform will connect them forever.

On Tuesday, Dunn donated his uniform so that Jackson — who died as a result of a hit-and-run on Sunday — could be buried in it with honor, according to the Conshohocken VFW Post 1074 commander, Walt Hartnett.

“He said, ‘The uniform just hangs there. I’ll go buy another one for when my time comes,’” Hartnett said of Dunn. “He was honored to be able to give it to a Marine.”

Jackson, 67, was struck by a car while standing beside his own vehicle about 6:30 p.m. Sunday on the 600 block of Astor Street in Norristown, police said. He was transported to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.


10625. Serviano’s arrest papers allege, “While at the bar [Severiano] indicated he consumed seven to eight Modelo beers. He informed the detectives that when he left the bar, he was ‘a little drunk.’ Severiano stated he made a stop at Oak and Astor Street and after I turned onto Astor Street, I heard a noise.”

10627. Federal immigration officials say the man charged in the hit-and-run death of a 67-year-old Vietnam veteran in Norristown was in the country illegally, and have lodged what’s known as an immigration detainer against him.
