Dunn man gets jail in hit-run death of Raleigh cook

Posted June 30, 2009

— A judge sentenced the culprit Tuesday for an April hit-and-run that took the life of a Raleigh cook.

Gavin Clifford Hawk, 28, of 713-A Peace St., will serve 19 to 23 months for the felony death by motor vehicle of Ian Kristopher Quick.

Police said Quick, 25, died when an SUV struck his mo-ped on eastbound Interstate 40 at Gorman Street in Raleigh.

The Raleigh Times, where Quick worked as a cook, held a memorial service and fundraiser in his honor after his April 28 death.

"We just thought it was fitting to celebrate everybody that he has touched, and everything that he has done,” said David McComas, Raleigh Times general manager.

    Felony hit and run seems to be worth almost nothing, and so do the victims of it. Let some legislator's child or grandchild be struck and killed in a case like this and the law just may change.

    They're both dingdangs. No mopeds on the freeway, no leaving the scene of an accident. I say good day.

    What a joke. Thats absolutely pathetic. If this fathead had run over one of my family members and gotten off this easy, id go Charles Bronson on him.

    If he had been a rich football player, and run over someone with his $375,000 Bently Automible and had his mama and a multi-million dollar lawyer standing by his side in court...he would have been FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Citizen782 you are exactly right, the penalties are too lenient for felony-hit-and-run resulting in death.

    If he was rich, a football player, and drunk when he did it he would have gotten off with a month

    you know, if I could see a picture of this guys actual vehicle I swear he is the one that I have seen on State's campus many times backing into people when parking or hitting them while parking and then speeds off (near the gym). I didn't get to see the plate though. If it was the same guy, it doesn't surprise me he hit and ran...
