There have been three unsolved hit-and-run cases in WNY over the past month. Two people have been killed and one woman left in serious condition.

On May 26th, Buffalo resident Arthur Redrick was killed while crossing Bailey Avenue while trying to get to a corner store near his Lang Avenue Home.

Buffalo Police have located the car that they believe struck and killed Redrick, but no one has been charged, yet, as police continue to investigate.

Arthur's sister, Barbara Zeigler, describes how difficult the situation has been and shares her thoughts about hit-and-run drivers.

Redrick's family is asking people to join them Monday evening June 26th at 6pm for a vigil at the spot where Arthur Redrick was killed (Corner of Bailey & Lang).

The family wants to highlight the fact that it will be one month since the disabled man was killed and bring attention to the problem of hit-and-run drivers with the need for tougher laws.
