Crews repair bus stop after fatal hit and run
A driver suspected of crashing into a Kansas City bus stop last week, killing a 59-year-old man sitting on a bench, has turned himself in, according to police.
Charges were expected to be filed soon against Nicholas S. Hammond, police said. He had been sought for at least five days in the June 11 crash that killed Mark D. Hovey at the RideKC Troost Max bus shelter near East 67th Street and Troost Avenue.
A Chevrolet Impala heading south on Troost careened off the road about 11:35 p.m. and hit the bus shelter where Hovey was sitting. The driver of the Impala ran away, police said.
Hovey was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
