A man is killed overnight while bringing groceries home from the store after being hit three times.

It happened on U.S. 23 in Johnson County in the Nippa community.

Investigators say 45 year old Cecil Hall was actually walking home along U.S. 23 when a car struck him.

Police say two other cars then hit him while he was on the road.

Those two cars stopped, but the first car didn't.

Now both police and Hall's family want to find that driver.

“To me, he was the best friend I ever had,” Lynda Howard lost her best friend in an instant.

“He was a good person who always found a way to make people laugh,” Howard said.

He was also her daughter's father.

Cecil Hall, 45, was killed near his home on U.S. 23.

He didn't have a car, so he always walked down the road to the Hilltop Market.

Sunday night, the walk took his life when not one, but three cars hit him.

Investigators say the first car struck him and knocked him over, and then the next two couldn't see him on the ground in the dark and hit him.

Witnesses told police the first car didn't even stop, and left the scene.

Latondya Hall, 19, says her dad would always do anything for anybody.

“He didn't have a lot of means to do anything himself, but if he could help you somehow, he would find a way,” Hall said.

They believe it's unfair someone didn't help him and drove away.

“If there's anyway we can find out what happened, how it happened, why it happened, and who had a part in it, we need to know that,” Howard said.

Now Cecil Hall won't make anymore walks.

“He isn't going to be there to walk me down the aisle or see his grandbabies grow up,” Hall said.

Something they don't know how they will live without.

Investigators say witnesses couldn't give a detailed description of the hit and run car, but they do know it was a beige, tan color sedan.

If anyone has any information, please call state police.
