A man from Hendersonville, Tennessee, is facing serious charges. The charges stem from a hit-and-run collision with two pedestrians in which one person was killed.
43-year-old Chris Solomon may be facing charges of DUI, two counts of leaving the scene of an accident with injuries, one count of vehicular homicide, and one count of vehicular assault.
Police allege that Solomon struck two pedestrians walking along Donmond Drive near Air Float Drive at about 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 15th.
Nearby witnesses said that the couple that Solomon hit had just visited a yard sale and were going back to pick up more purchases when they were struck.
The male that Solomon hit was taken to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. The woman was taken to another area hospital. Later Saturday night, the male died from his injuries.
Authorities state that Solomon did not stop after hitting the pedestrians. Police were able to catch up with him a few blocks away.
Solomon was booked into the Sumner County jail on a bond of $300,000.
Another concern along the residential road where the accident took place is speeding. While the speed limit is 25 m.p.h., neighbors say that speeds of 50-60 m.p.h. are common.
After the accident, police did monitor the road for a time.
