Charges in Grandview hit-and-run

A 41-year-old Grandview man faces felony charges in connection with a vehicle striking a pedestrian in Grandview early Sunday, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

Ray Anthony Jordan, 12/24/1974, faces one count of Leaving the Scene of a Motor Vehicle Accident and one count of Driving While Revoked.*

According to court records, Jordan turned himself into Grandview police and told them he had been driving on I-49 when he thought he hit a deer. He said he had left the scene because his license was suspended. An investigation of his vehicle at a body shop indicated he had struck a person. Emergency responders transported the injured pedestrian to the hospital, where he later died.

An investigation continues and will include consideration of further criminal charges. Prosecutors have requested a bond of $100,000.

*Charges are only accusations and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until the defendant is either found guilty or has pleaded.
