A man seen carrying papers from the Gaston County Jail was killed after being struck by a vehicle on Highway 321 last night.
The police, and everyone for that matter, are still confused by the situation. They do not not if the man was just released from jail, or if he knew someone and was visiting at the time of the incident.
The Gaston County Police reportes that the man was in his mid-20s, and walking dangerously close to the shoulder line along the side of Hgihway 321.
At the moment of impact, the man’s body was thrown across the street to the other side of the road.
The driver of the cat that hit the victim did not have a cell-phone on her, so she left the scene to call for assistance. Accordigly, the driver was pulled over for a traffic stop due to the physical condition of her car, and reported the crime to the Dallas police.
It does not appear, at this time, that the driver will be charged with anything.

When the victim went to call 911, the robbers ran away via foot.
The victim was able to describe the boys sufficiently enough to warrant a positive identification for the duo as the pair of robbers when the police later apprehended the teens.
The victim’s cell phone was also recovered nearby. The teens have been arrested and taken to police headquarters,where they were interviewed by detectives.
Both have subsequently been charged with robbery. Since the state of North Carolina does not have a statutory definition of “robbery,” NC uses the common law definition to charge the teens.
They are currently being held in Charlotte’s Juvenile Detention Center.

A Rock Hill resident has just been arrested for slamming his car into a 66-year-old woman’s vehicle, and then right into a building, causing over $10,000 worth of damages to the building alone.
The Rock Hill Police Department reported that the 51-year-old defendant was extremely intoxicated at the time of incident. His BAC level was almost three times the legal limit at an astonishing 0.21.
Apparently the defendant was driving near East Main Street and Firetower Road around 3:00 p.m., when the defendant lost control of his black work van, and barrelled into an elderly woman’s car. The man then kept driving after impact, only to slam into The Resident Services Building on East Main.
The Resident Services building has serious damage, and the defendant’s van blew a tire during the collision.
He tried to leave the scene of the accident, when the police finally caught up with him. The defendant immediately exercised his right to refuse the field sobriety tests the officers attempted to administer, but then later blew a .021 in the breathalyzer at the station.
The legal limit in South Carolina is .08, nearly three times less then what the defendant was driving with. He even reported to the police that he had 12 beers at lunch, along with “a bunch of chicken wings.”
His has thus been charged with driving while intoxicated, and leaving the scene of an accident. Moreover, he caused a total of $12,000 worth of damages by the time the day was over.
