It's been exactly one year since a Lexington man was killed in a hit and run accident. No arrest was ever made, now the victim's family is making a renewed plea for answers.
Lance Newby died around the corner from his mother's house on Winburn Drive in Lexington. "It's hard for me when I leave my home. You know I turn the corner and there he is where it happened," says Jennifer Stigall, Lance's mother.
Stigall held her dying son in her arms last year. Now, she holds flowers and balloons. Sunday afternoon Stigall and her family gathered at Newby's gravesite in the Cove Haven Cemetery to remember and demand justice.
"It's been a year. No ones been arrested. No closure. I cant see how somebody can run a person over like that," says Sturgill.
Lance Newby Junior was an extremely helpful and handy man, according to his family. Now Newby can't be there for his family and his children's special moments. "He's not going to be there for his birthdays, graduation, college, nothing like that," says Michael Stigall, Lance's brother.
"You can explain, like, where it happened, but we cant explain why it happened, who did it and why they did it," says Lance's sister Jessica Newby.
Newby's family says a driver jumped a curb at a bus stop and hit the 29-year-old last year.
If you have any information about the accident, call Lexington Police.
