— Family and friends will gather later this week to mourn a Raleigh man killed in a weekend hit-and-run.

Visitation for Daniel Allan Blan was scheduled for Wednesday at 6 p.m. at Capital Funeral Home, 2205 E. Millbrook in Raleigh. The funeral was scheduled for Thursday at 2 p.m.

Blan, 24, was the passenger in a car driven by Jason Raymond Butler, also 24. Blan died when Butler lost control and struck a utility pole along Lumley Road, near Mount Herman Road, around 2 a.m. Sunday, police said.

Butler fled the scene and was arrested Sunday afternoon on a charge of felony hit-and-run, Raleigh police said.

Butler was released after posting a $10,000 secured bond.
