Man Charged With Hit-and-Run Death on St Pauls Boulevard in Norfolk

Last week we noted a tragic hit-and-run death on St Pauls Boulevard in Norfolk that left a victim lying in the road.

The accident took place at the intersection of Saint Paul’s Boulevard and E. Charlotte Street close to Scope in Norfolk. Police said a pedestrian was hit in the road.

Three days after the hit-and-run death on St Pauls Boulevard, a 28-year-old man turned himself in to police, reported WAVY.com.

The victim was later identified as John Cutillo III of Philadelphia. He was found lying in the roadway unconscious.

Police charged a 28-year-old man with felony hit-and-run and driving while suspended after the fatal accident, reported WAVY.com

Cutillo was pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck, WAVY reported.

Witnesses told police that they saw a red Jeep SUV was being driven recklessly on Saint Paul’s Boulevard. It hit Mr. Cutillo while he was attempting to cross the street and did not stop.

The 28-year-old man is being held at the Norfolk City Jail with no bond.

Questions over The Hit-and-Run Death on St Pauls Boulevard

There are plenty of questions that linger over this tragic hit-and-run death on St Pauls Boulevard.

If a car is being driven recklessly, a driver may be liable for a death. Often if a pedestrian is crossing the road at an intersection, it constitutes an unmarked crosswalk.

There is never an excuse for leaving an accident scene. Often hit-and-run drivers have something to hide such as the fact they have consumed alcohol or are driving without a license.

Typically, they face far more serious criminal sanctions for leaving the scene of a wreck.

Another accident involving a pedestrian was reported this morning on Martin Luther King Expressway in Portsmouth. Police said it was a likely domestic incident.

Police arrested a woman following a domestic incident on the VA-164 MLK Expressway. WAVY reported Virginia State Police received a call around 10:30 a.m. Monday that someone was reported passed out on the I-264 East ramp.

State police Sgt. Michelle Anaya said a preliminary investigation established a husband and wife were traveling on the highway when the two got into a domestic situation.

Anaya says the wife pulled over as her husband exited the vehicle. She then drove off, striking him with the side view mirror. The man was taken to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening.
