A Bucks County Investigating Grand Jury has recommended a 20-year-old man be charged in a fatal hit-and-run crash last Christmas Eve in Bristol Township.
Kevin Michael Baker Jr., of Bensalem, turned himself in on Monday, April 25, 2022, to be arraigned on charges of accidents involving death or personal injury, tampering with physical evidence, and failure to stop and give information or render aid. Magisterial District Judge Terrence Hughes set bail at $150,000, 10 percent.
John Dugan, 65, of Bristol Township was killed at 5:09 p.m. on December 24, 2021, as he crossed State Road in Bristol Township to go to a Christmas party. The investigation found that Dugan fell on the street and was run over by a truck driven by Baker.
The Bucks County 20th Investigating Grand Jury heard testimony from several witnesses, including Bristol Township Police Officer Kenneth Margerum, the lead investigator in the crash, in reaching the recommendation to charge Baker.
