Police to announce arrest in mysterious hit-and-run
Thursday, May 19, 2011

 


LEXINGTON, SC (WIS) - Police have made an arrest in a mysterious hit-and-run accident that left a moped driver dead and a community wondering just what happened during the early morning hours of May 9.

The Lexington Police Department will hold a news conference at 1:00 p.m. today to announce the arrest in the accident that killed 37-year-old Rez Miller of Lexington.

Miller died when the moped he was driving was hit by a truck around 3:30 a.m. at the intersection of South Lake Drive and Industrial Boulevard.

Surveillance video taken from a nearby Shell station shows Miller stopped at the light before the truck hit him from behind. The truck sped off after the wreck without stopping.

Miller was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Miller's family said he was a kitchen manager for a local restaurant, and was riding the moped to save money on gas.
