Harnett County, N.C. — A man has been charged in a hit-and-run that killed a Sanford man last weekend, state troopers said Tuesday.
Gerald Campbell, 18, of Sanford, was charged with felony hit-and-run in the death of David Schultz, 38, of Sanford. Investigators said Schultz was walking in the middle of Ponderosa Road in Harnett County, north of Highway 27, when he was struck by a vehicle and dragged several feet.
Campbell was questioned and his vehicle was seized Monday. Investigators said they found blood and tissue on the blue 2000 Chevy Blazer.
Campbell was cooperative after he was found, troopers said.
Schultz’s girlfriend, Shirley Becker, said Schultz had been at a party at her house Saturday night when he had too much to drink and got out of control. He left the party and was walking in the roadway when he was hit.
