NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The woman allegedly responsible for a fatal hit and run accident surrendered to police earlier today. The victim’s heartbroken family says he was walking to work when he was killed.

Jared Higgs has the details.

Overwhelmed with grief, Sandy Rolle’s family visits the scene of where he was killed early Monday morning.

Rolle, a 53-year-old truck driver at Bahamas Waste, was struck and killed as he was walking to work. His car was down, but family members say he was dedicated to what he did. Surrounded by Rolle’s brothers, sisters, one of his children and his father, first cousin Tanya Moncur questioned how the driver could live with herself after leaving the scene.

According to police the incident occurred after 1:30 on Monday morning. Rolle was struck as he walked on John F. Kennedy Drive, west of Christie Avenue.

Investigations revealed Rolle was struck by the driver of a light blue Nissan Note that left the scene heading in a western direction. While that driver didn’t stop, a driver heading in the opposite direction saw what happened and called police.

Family members initially offered a reward for information on the driver of the vehicle, but she has since turned herself in.

Family members say Rolle was the father of three adult children.
