Troopers Say No Charges After Driver Found In Fatal Hit & Run

The Highway Patrol believes it has located the man responsible for hitting and killing a woman with his vehicle in the East, and they will not be charging him.

Troopers tell WITN News that Sylvester Godette, Jr. of Washington contacted them, saying he may have been the one responsible for hitting Wanda Ore. The Chocowinity woman was killed as she was walking down Mill Road on the evening of November 28th.

Godette told the Highway Patrol that he didn't know that he had hit the woman--and found out several days later about the death on the road.

An inspection of his car found a part of the woman's clothing under his car.

Trooper Darrell Pugh say they don't believe Godette knew what he had hit and after speaking with the district attorney lawmen feel they don't have enough to go forward with any charges.
