HANOVER TOWNSHIP — April 5, 2015   Officials say a man from Wilkes-Barre died, after he was hit while crossing the street near Ashley. The driver did not stop. The victim, Larry Herbert, was 61.
Police in Hanover Township are still looking for the silver jeep that witnesses say struck and killed a man on Hazle Street just after 11:30 p.m. on Friday.
Kate Moore still can’t believe what she saw happen late Friday night in front of her home on Hazle Street.
“I heard the thump outside, I thought oh my gosh my car is getting hit, that is when I see the man laying in the road,” said Moore.
Officials say Larry Herbert, 61, was crossing the street outside Claire’s Bar when someone driving a silver Jeep Cherokee hit him and kept on going.
People inside the bar say that the victim was especially polite and would shake the bartenders hand before leaving. They added that he was crossing the street to wait for a ride when he was hit.
Moore says she could hear the victim’s friend encouraging him to hang on.
