Police Have Suspect in Hit and Run

A man arrested by Ft. Wright Police Saturday for DUI is now the suspect in a deadly hit and run accident just an hour earlier.
 
Cincinnati Police impounded Korie Washington's black Jeep Cherokee Monday night and will spend the next few days investigating it for evidence. But already they feel pretty sure it's the same black Jeep Cherokee that rear-ended a pregnant woman, who then lost her baby after the accident.
 
"It is the vehicle we were looking for," Sgt. John Wainscott of the Cincinnati Police Traffic Unit says.
 
Police have not charged Washington in the Cincinnati accident, but he does face charges of driving drunk with his young child in the car for the Ft. Wright accident.

"He still has his daughter, my niece doesn't have her son," Trudy Daily says. Daily's niece, Tameka Ervin, lost her first born son after the hit and run accident, just days before her due date. Daily hopes her family is closer to justice.
 
"We're angry," she says. "I'm not going to make any bones about it, we're angry. But when that settles, the result is getting Tameka back on her feet, moving on with her life. Always remembering her son. What else can she do?"
 
The family has set up a memorial fund to help pay for the baby's funeral. You can donate to the Lonzier John Andrew Ervin Fund at any Fifth-Third Bank.
