Judge decides to continue 2015 Columbus hit and run case, delaying start of trial

Local News

According to the Muscogee County DA’s Office, the judge decided to continue the case because of an issue with Tarver’s attorney. 

In July of 2015 19-year-old Asia Hoskins was struck by a car that was drag racing on Lawyers Lane near 10th street. 

William Tarver is charged with causing serious injury by vehicle, driving with a suspended or revoked license, reckless driving, racing on a highway, and leaving the scene of an accident. 

Our media partner, the Ledger-Enquirer, reports that the impact of the crash was so intense that it dislodged both the engine and transmission of one of the vehicles. 

Police say at the time of the accident Tarver had his child in the car.
