Troopers Still Hunting For Trucker Who Fatally Struck Broken Down Driver

The incident happened at about 3:30 a.m. on March 3, 2015 near Columbus on I-70 near mile marker 79. Fed-Ex truck driver Doug Griffin had broken down on eastbound I-70 and was working with another driver, Michael West, to make the necessary repairs to his truck. Both men were struck by an 18 wheeler which didn’t stop and continued heading east.

Griffen was pronounced dead on the scene and West suffered severe injuries that he is still struggling with to this day.
