A Boston Driver was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide after he confessed on national television that he ran over a pedestrian and fled from the scene. The individual told the reporter that hit-and-runs happen all that time and that people die.
Boston Driver Described Himself as Gangster
Phonician Fitts, a 23-year-old Boston driver, was recently taken into custody and charged with leaving the scene of a deadly accident and vehicular homicide.
According to the authorities, the accident, which occurred on the Commonwealth Avenue at around 1:00 p.m. Wednesday, involved an 80-year-old who was trying to cross the street.
Based on eyewitness accounts, Fitts, who was driving a Jeep, was speeding down Commonwealth Avenue when he saw the man crossing the street. In his own words – “I was driving too quick, I was driving too quick to the point where I couldn’t really stop, and it was green light.”
Fitts told the authorities that he used his horn many times to alert the pedestrian. However, according to the Boston driver, his only choices were to either end up dead or to crash into a pole. Unfortunately, instead of avoiding the pedestrian, Fitts ran him over. The victim was declared dead at the scene.
The authorities arrested Fitts but released him a few hours later.
Instead of going home, Fitts remained in front of the police station for an interview with Boston 25 News’ Drew Karendes.
On national television, Fitts, who described himself as a big-hearted gangster who watches over his community, confessed to killing the man and running away from the scene of the accident. He also said that hit-and-run accidents happen all the time.
Fitts ended his interview by saying that this was a sad event, all the more unfortunate because it happened to him.
