Fleeing the scene

The news on the radio said that the driver had been caught apparently some time after this article was posted.

The allegation is that he was waiting for his girlfriend and that they were both complicit in the shoplifting.

Both of them have a lot more to worry about now.

The parking lot of an H-E-B supermarket at Marbach Road and Loop 410 was the site of a fatal hit-and-run late Monday night.

While crossing the parking lot to go back to his vehicle, 70-year-old Charles Simpson was struck by a white SUV, San Antonio police said.

Leading up to the incident, the driver had been talking to a security guard in front of the supermarket, investigators said, and “became upset when they told him his girlfriend had been arrested for shoplifting.”
