Family Searching for Car Involved in Deadly Hit and Run Collision

black chevy cobaltCHARLESTON, W.Va. – Family, friends, and the Kanawha County sheriff’s department are asking for help in identifying a car involved in a fatal hit and run accident.

At about 11:20 p.m., January 27, a car hit and killed Dennis Glen James of Elkview.  James was crossing U.S. 119 at the Blue Creek Post Office when he was struck and killed by the car that then fled the scene, according to Lt. Sean Crosier of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies believe the car that hit James was either a 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt or a 2007-2010 Pontiac G5. The two vehicles have identical body styles but were sold under different names.  The car may have been black.

Local residents and business owners are being asked to keep a look out for anyone who has recently bought driver’s side parts — including headlights, fenders or bumpers — or anyone who may have recently sold a Cobalt or G5.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective David Duff at 304-357-0169. Crosier said callers may remain anonymous.

Update: Police arrested a suspect Feb 16.

West Law Firm has great lawyers. They helped me in my case and every time I needed to call or talk to someone they were willing to talk and help me in anyway. David is the absolute best. His communication was unbelievable throughout the entire process as well as his worth ethic. He took great care of me I would highly recommend him for any auto related injury. He continually fought for me and got me the settlement I deserved!

I've worked with other attorneys in the past, but West Law Firm has gone over and above my expectations! I was expecting the same old runaround about when somebody could get to my case. They kept me up-to-date about everything. They really worked for me and I would highly recommend them.

I truly felt that they were working for me. I wasn’t just another payday for them. David and Paula were absolutely the best.
