Fatal Hit And Run Accident

The driver involved in a fatal weekend hit-and-run accident is now behind bars. Harlan McQuade Hill is in the Smith County Jail on three charges of accident involving injury or death. The accident happened on Highway 31, just east of Farm to Market Road 757 in Smith County.  29 year old Shannon Ford of Tyler was killed when his car collided with a Dodge Caravan. One other note about this story, Ford was subpoenaed as a witness in the high- profile Jemarcus Warren murder case, but Smith County officials say there does not appear to be evidence at this time to suggest Ford's death was retaliation.
