GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Jason McCann, 44, has been formally charged with hitting and killing a couple from Grand Rapids over the weekend with his car.
He was arraigned on two counts of failing to stop at the scene of an accident, when at fault, causing death, and two counts of reckless driving causing death. The charges are each punishable by up to 15 years in prison.
A judge on Tuesday, Oct. 22 set bond for McCann at $100,000 bond; he will be required to wear a tether if he is released from jail.
Todd Fuhr and Tracy Curtiss Fuhr were killed after being hit by a car Saturday night.
The Grand Rapids Police Department said the couple were in a crosswalk at the intersection of Oakes Street SW and Grandville Avenue SW when they were hit by the car around 11:13 p.m.
The driver fled the scene, but a tip led to McCann's arrest.
McCann has a history of driving while under the influence. In 2004, he was charged with operating while impaired by liquor in Holland, according to state records. Then, in 2016, McCann was arrested and charged for operating while intoxicated in Hudsonville.
McCann was arrested Sunday morning after police received a tip that led them to the vehicle.
