Hudson, FL (January 10, 2020) – Police have allegedly arrested a man following a fatal pedestrian accident on Aripeka Road in Hudson yesterday, January 9th.
A 21-year-old man called police around 3:00 p.m. telling them that he intentionally hit a man with his car and killed him.
When Pasco Fire Rescue responded to the scene, they found a 75-year-old victim dead on the side of the road. They were then able to locate the suspect’s PT Cruiser about a quarter of a mile down the road. They found damages that were consistent with the accident.
The suspect admitted to police that he saw the victim walking alongside the road with a walking stick. He did a U-turn on the road and purposely struck the pedestrian.
The suspect was arrested and charged with first-degree murder.
The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues.
We would like to offer our condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
