ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany police are questioning a man about a hit and run accident that sent two pedestrians to the hospital. 65-year old Manuel John Hall Junior turned himself into police Tuesday afternoon. He owns the Chevy pick up truck that hit 37-year old Kenneth Parker and 36 year old Donna King as they walked on Jefferson Street around 9:15 Monday morning.

They were taken to a hospital but then released. Witnesses told police the pick-up truck was traveling west on Pine Avenue when it hit the two, but kept going.  Officer Jon Segroves said, "Mr. Hall did advise me that the witnesses did stop him and he did begin returning to the scene, but he did not completely come back to the scene and left the area."

Police say the extent of the injuries of the victims will determine what Mr. Hall is charged with.
