Deadly Hit And Run Driver Now Charged With Vehicular Homicide

April 13, 2021

An Escambia County man accused in a deadly hit and run accident on Mobile Highway last week was formally charged Tuesday.

Charles Fitzgerald Levi Noble, 34, was booked into the Escambia County Jail on charges of vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of a crash and destruction of evidence. He is being held without bond.

Noble surrendered at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office last week after the vehicle he was allegedly driving was located, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. He was not immediately arrested at that time.

The blue Mustang involved in the crash was recognized by a man who saw the vehicle description in the news, and he called authorities. It was parked outside the WoodSpring Suites in the 2000 block of West Detroit Boulevard with the damage covered by a tarp. Troopers responded to the scene and seized the vehicle, which FHP said had front end damage consistent with the fatal hit and pedestrian crash.

FHP said the 49-year old female pedestrian was struck by a vehicle sometime late Tuesday, April 6 or early Wednesday, April 7 on Mobile Highway near Houston Avenue., about one-third of a mile south of Saufley Field Road. The impact of the collision knocked her down into a deep ditch. Victim names are no longer released by FHP.

    Wow he just got a minimum of 4 years in prison and $10,000 fine. He could get as much as 30 years. Makes me wonder why he felt a need to run.
