NBC10 Philly has more information about the accident and the victim. Some details:
- The victim was Gregory Loper, a 49-year old father of 11.
- The 22-year old driver, Brett Truskin, had been released from custody earlier that day after being charged with a DUI this past Wednesday.
- The driver also struck an occupied vehicle. The driver of that occupied vehicle was reported to be in the hospital in stable condition.
Our hearts, prayers, and sympathy are extended to the family and friends of Mr. Loper, and we are reminded yet again of the toll hit-and-run drivers take on pedestrians and bicyclists.
