Springfield driver who hit and killed child outside elementary was driving without a license - yet remains un-charged | KY3

Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

Police say Lonnie Yeager, 35, was driving an SUV in September, when he hit and killed Riddick Tudor outside Campbell Elementary in Springfield. Yeager was driving without a license. In fact, he has never been licensed to drive a car in any state.

That was 11 weeks ago, and the Greene County prosecutor still does not have a police report on his desk.

MoBikeFed comment: This is a driver who had been permanently denied a license because he is unable to drive safely, yet has been found driving unlicensed several times in the past.

Hopefully Springfield police are just doing a thorough job before bringing the right charges with the right evidence against this driver, but the slow pace of justice must be infuriating to family and friends of the child who was killed by this reckless driver.
