James Copas, 90, was walking across the parking lot. Witnesses say the driver, Erica Fricks, backed up her car in the drive-thru because her order was wrong. That’s when she hit Copas, according to witnesses.
According to employees, Fricks came inside and told the staff about the accident, then left the scene. By the time police arrived, she was gone.
They later tracked her down on I-74. She was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an accident. She later posted bail. Copas was taken to the hospital, treated for his injuries and released.
