MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - A Martinsburg man was indicted Wednesday by a Berkeley County grand jury on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident involving death, stemming from a fatal hit-and-run last December.
Gregory L. White, 47, of 2050 Martins Landing, Apt. 615, was indicted on the charge in connection with the death of Michael Briden, 45, also of Martins Landing in Martinsburg.
Briden was killed Dec. 18, 2004, as he was walking along Dry Run Road.
Martinsburg Police Department Sgt. Brian Yost, a certified accident reconstruction expert, investigated the scene of the 7:48 a.m. incident and said it appeared that Briden had been hit from behind, police said.
Police received a tip a few hours after the accident that White was at City Hospital in Martinsburg asking for a medical exam. He told police that he had been involved in an accident and that he had hit a deer, police have said.
