The victim, Clarence Wolff, died from his injuries on Tuesday.

“It definitely is a relief to know that we finally get a little bit of closure from all of this and that guy is not out there just living his life without any repercussions.," Lauren Gerritsen, Wolff's grandaughter, said.

According to witnesses, the driver stopped briefly to check on Wolff, then got back in his vehicle and drove away.

“How can you sleep? How can you talk to people on the streets? How can you communicate with your family knowing everything you did," Gerritsen said.
