BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Following an anonymous tip, East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Deputies arrested a man who is suspected in a fatal hit and run that happened in May of 2012.
Deputies say after 37-year-old Kenneth Wayne Station was in custody, the man admitted to driving the vehicle that hit 23-year-old Durell Anthony Ballard. He also told detectives that he didn't call authorities because he had been drinking and had several past DWI's.
According to the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a hit and run motor vehicle crash in which an unknown vehicle struck a pedestrian on May 27, 2012 at approximately 11:56 p.m.
A concerned resident flagged down patrolling deputies to alert them to a man in a road side ditch in the 7700 block of Hanks Drive, near Lanier Drive in north Baton Rouge. Ballard later died as a result of his injuries.
Station lives on the street where the hit and run happened. An anonymous tip led detectives to Station's wrecked vehicle, which was at a local repair shop. They were able to match his vehicle with fragments recovered from the crash scene.
Detectives took Station into custody for questioning, and he admitted that he was the driver of the vehicle at the time of the crash. Station also told detectives that he did not contact law enforcement due to the fact that he had consumed several alcoholic beverages and had several past DWI arrests.
Station has been charged with vehicular homicide, hit and run and driving under suspension.
