UPDATE: Two pedestrians killed in crashes on SR 933

Posted: Updated:

Police have found the driver of a car involved in a fatal hit and run accident that is connected to another fatal accident.

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office says a pedestrian was hit by a truck around 11:20pm Monday night.  The crash happened on SR 933 near Auten Road in St. Joseph County.  Authorities identified the victim as 43-year-old Michael Marks.  The truck driver stopped immediately and no charges are expected to be filed in this crash.

Following that crash, authorities say 49-year-old David Fordyce was trying to wave vehicles away from Marks' body when he was hit by car.  That car drove off.

Employees at Family Video near where the crash happened told FOX28 they knew Michael Marks.

An employee there says Marks often rented videos and sometimes asked to use the phone.

She described Marks as a sweet man who was frequently seen walking in the area.
