Philadelphia Police Recover Car Used In Port Richmond Fatal Hit-Run

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Police accident investigators say they have recovered the striking car involved in Sunday morning hit-and-run in Port Richmond.

Acting on a tip from a person of interest, police recovered the suspected car involved in the fatal accident, but wouldn’t say where the car was found.

William McCue was hit as he was attempting to cross Richmond Street at Sergeant early Sunday morning. McCue, who was walking home after celebrating his 28th birthday, died of multiple injuries at Hahnemann University Hospital.

According to police, a person of interest contacted them late Sunday and police are hoping to talk directly to the individual in the company of his attorney fairly soon.

Investigators say the operator of the hit-run car faces numerous charges, including leaving the scene of an accident and reckless endangerment.

    So they recovered the car obviously it is registered to someone so go pick them up!!! What in the hell is wrong with our justice system??? They have to wait for the person to decide they want to come in and talk ohhh yea and wait for the attorney too…how sad it is!!! That person didn’t wait for Billy to get across the street did they, they just kept driving even after he was thrown on the hood of their vehicle drove for 50 ft and watched as he fell off, laying in the middle of the street left to die. Our justice system disgusts me!!!

    I was recently hit in Philadelphia, as well by a vehicle and it seems to me, the 24th Police District, was very ignorant to me ,and as well the actual report that they placed, I was very upset that, the officer that was at the scene of my accident on March 7, at Allegheny and Jasper, did not do a good job, as well give the man a soberity, test that was so in need to be done
