MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. (WALA) –  A Semmes man who died following a hit and run accident will be buried Monday, August 4.

Thomas Hutt, 69, was hit by a pickup truck July 18 as he was leaving the Cash Saver grocery store on Highway 45. Officials said the driver ran over Hutt and kept going.

visitation was held for Hutt Sunday night, August 3, at Radney Funeral Home in Mobile. Funeral services will be held Monday, August 4 in his hometown of Tuscaloosa.

Thomas’ daughter, Sherry Hutt-McDade, said police and witnesses told her the driver and another man were involved in a dispute that led to the deadly accident. However, no one has been arrested yet.

“Over $10. One guy owed the other guy $10, and he was chasing him for $10. You know what’s so bad, is my dad, if they had told my dad, ‘Hey we’re fighting over $10,’ my daddy would have opened his wallet up and gave him $10, and told them to stop fighting. It’s stupid, life is too short,” said Sherry.

No one has been arrested yet.
