An Ohio pedestrian was fatally hit by an SUV on the evening of July 15, 2009, but witnesses of the pedestrian accident are giving conflicting statements. Some of the people who saw the auto accident happen claim that the man was hit by just a Lexus SUV, but others claim that the man was struck by a different SUV first, which then fled the scene.

Kerpsack Co., L.P.A. in Columbus, Ohio will investigate the circumstances of the pedestrian accident to find out what exactly happened and hold them responsible for the injuries suffered by the victim and their family.
The police who are investigating the accident initially reported that the man was struck by an SUV and the SUV then fled the scene. Now, they are saying the accident was not a hit and run and that they know who killed the man.
After the initial collision, the man was taken to Miami Valley Hospital so he could be treated for the severe brain injuries he suffered. The injuries, however, were too severe and the man died at the hospital.
