CAMP DICK — A well-known Garrard County man could face felony charges after a hit-and-run accident Saturday night.
Roger Miller, 36, a local radio announcer and former Lancaster Banking Center manager for Farmers National Bank, hit pedestrian Edward T. Alley, 56, with the passenger side mirror of his pickup truck on Cleo Avenue about 9:45 p.m, according to the Garrard County Sheriff's Office.
Alley was transported to the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center for injuries to his shoulder and was in serious condition there this morning.
Miller was not arrested, but his case is expected to go before a grand jury July 20, Sheriff Ronnie Wardrip said.
On Saturday, Alley was walking east on Cleo Avenue with his wife when Miller's blue, 2010 Dodge truck struck him from behind.
Miller initially continued driving toward his home at 820 Cleo Ave. but returned to the scene shortly after and spoke briefly with Mrs. Alley, asking if he could call an ambulance. Witnesses said they already had contacted emergency medical services, and Miller left, Wardrip said.
However, juvenile witnesses got the license plate number off Miller's truck, and hours later, deputies located him and the vehicle, according to the release.
Miller and other witnesses confirmed he was driving the truck when it struck Alley.
