Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged JC Deandrey Hogan, 30 (DOB: 11/22/1988) of Detroit, in connection with a fatal car crash that killed Gregory Anderson, age 62, also of Detroit.

On March 16, 2019 at approximately 8:43 p.m., Detroit police officers were dispatched to the scene of a hit-and-run that occurred at Van Dyke Avenue and East Seven Mile Road in Detroit. Upon arrival, the officers discovered the victim in the roadway. Medics arrived at the scene and transported the victim to the hospital for treatment, but he succumbed to his injuries. Further, the defendant and his nine-year-old son were located in their vehicle, which had been driven off the roadway into a nearby tree. The child had a minor injury to his head that was treated by medics at the scene.

It is alleged that the defendant was driving under the influence of alcohol when he struck and killed Mr. Anderson. Further facts and evidence will be presented at the Preliminary Examination.
