September 16, 2012
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An unlicensed driver accused of killing a pedestrian in a hit-and-run has been ordered to face trial after a witness said the driver got out of his car, checked on the victim and then drove off.
The Oklahoman reports that a judge found sufficient evidence Friday to order 62-year-old Leonard Lee Bailey of Oklahoma City to face trial.
Bailey is charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident and causing an accident without a driver's license.
Authorities say 38-year-old Lee Michael Day was killed after a vehicle struck him in March.
Bailey was being held on $40,000 bond at the Oklahoma County jail. Jail records didn't list an attorney for him.
