    Was the man's name ever released? I was curious, because I had just walked out of the Load 'n Jug when I saw a woman that looked like she was helping someone on the ground. It kind of upsets me I wasn't able to really do anything. My prayers go out to the family, whoever they are.

    memphis,how in the world could you hit someone and kill them at the intersection it's obvious to me that the LADY wasn't playing attention to what she was during and she should have been charged with something this whole thing wreaks of a coverup,this the first time in my 52 year history that some one could hit a citzen and not be charged with any thing not even a ticket!!!

    A car traveling 50MPH would send him 50 feet to the crosswalk dumb@$$ they all cross from those apartments to the big R and stay about 50-100 feet east of the crosswalk

    This Guy was in a hurry to get across to the loaf N' jug or the liquor store to feed his buzz just like all the rest in that area. Probably baked on "medical" marijuana considering the area.

    Family and friends of the victim, I hope your hearts heal soon. To everyone who has made a "funny" comment--shame on you. I am ashamed to even live in your zip code. Bored LOSERS. Think about your mothers, grandmas, fathers. Keep hiding behind your computers whaere you feel safe. I am certain those with the nasty comments are cowards and morons.

    @ Detroitgirl - My condolences to your family. I don't really like to read comments on articles anymore for this very fact. There are plenty of people in this city that are sorry for your family's loss. We are not insensitive like some of the posters here.
