Man arrested in deadly hit-and-run crash in Springfield
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A 40-year-old man has been charged in a deadly hit-and-run crash in Springfield.
Shawn Bouley, of Reeds Spring, was charged Wednesday with leaving the scene of the crash that killed 45-year-old Bradley Bizzle. No attorney was listed for him in online court records.
Police said in a news release that Bizzle died at a hospital after he was struck Jan. 22 while crossing a crossing a street. The vehicle that hit Bizzle was found the next day.
Police Lt. Grant Dorrell said earlier that the evidence indicates Bizzle wasn't walking in a crosswalk but between two crosswalks in the middle of the street when he was hit. Police say the investigation is ongoing.
