Hit & Run Victim Fighting for His Life

Hit & Run Victim Fighting for His Life

Posted: Updated:
PRICHARD, Ala - The victim of a hit and run remains in critical condition. 69-year-old Thomas Hutt was hit by a pickup truck Friday afternoon in Prichard.

Witnesses say Hutt was hit as he walked across the parking lot. The driver of the truck fled the scene.

Police were able to catch up with a suspect a short time later in Prichard. He tried to elude officers but was tackled and arrested.

“How can someone do something like that? That’s what I want to know,” said Hutt’s daughter Sherry Hutt. “How can you run someone over and leave them laying on the ground and get back in your truck and leave? Everybody has a family. Everybody does. Nobody deserves that. I don’t care who you are.”

Prichard Police have not released the name of the suspect.
