The police, and everyone for that matter, are still confused by the situation. They do not not if the man was just released from jail, or if he knew someone and was visiting at the time of the incident.
The Gaston County Police reportes that the man was in his mid-20s, and walking dangerously close to the shoulder line along the side of Hgihway 321.
At the moment of impact, the man’s body was thrown across the street to the other side of the road.
The driver of the cat that hit the victim did not have a cell-phone on her, so she left the scene to call for assistance. Accordigly, the driver was pulled over for a traffic stop due to the physical condition of her car, and reported the crime to the Dallas police.
It does not appear, at this time, that the driver will be charged with anything.
