A man faces probable civil and criminal liability after he fled the scene of a fatal alcohol-involved car crash.
Witnesses say the wreck occurred near North Gate Shopping Center on Louisville Road. The driver apparently ignored a red light and slammed into another vehicle, who had the green light as she pulled out of the shopping center’s parking lot; she was later pronounced dead at the scene. The driver then left his vehicle, looked inside the victim’s car, and then ran away on foot. He was apprehended a short distance away.
The driver told first responders that he had been drinking.
