Kentucky woman killed in hit-and-run crash

A former professional basketball player entered a not guilty plea after he was arrested for his alleged involvement in a fatal hit-and-run accident recently in Louisville, Kentucky.

A woman who was attempting to cross the Dixie Highway was struck and killed. No additional information about the woman, such as her age or hometown, was available.

The man said he knew that he had hit something on the road but did not stop. He turned himself into police the following day.

The 40-year-old man played collegiately for North Carolina State and then professionally in the National Basketball Association (NBA) and overseas.

It is in North Carolina that the man was sentenced to two years in prison in October 2017 on a driving while intoxicated charge and for violating his probation related to prior convictions for drunk driving.

He served about half of the prison term.

In 2011, he was charged with habitual offender status when he was stopped. He had been convicted of driving while intoxicated three previous times.

In the Kentucky incident, he has been charged for driving without a license, without car insurance and with expired tags. He also was charged with leaving the scene of an accident and failing to render aid.

The investigation, in this case, is continuing, and the woman's family undoubtedly will be watching developments closely. In the meantime, they should get in touch with an attorney with experience in auto accidents for guidance. They likely have sustained financial losses, such as funeral costs, and could be eligible to seek reimbursement for those and other expenses.
