Man Arrested in Connection with Hit and Run

A 57-year-old West Point man has been arrested in connection with one of the three hit and runs in Lee County over the past few days.

Randolph Andrews was charged yesterday with leaving the scene of an injury accident, a serious misdemeanor, for allegedly striking 21-year-old William Londrie of Montrose last Sunday on County Road 103, northwest of Ft. Madison.

Sheriff Jim Sholl says Londrie was walking near the road when he was hit by Andrew’s red Grand Am, which left some parts and debris in it’s wake as Andrews drove home without stopping.

Sholl put out a request to the public for help identifying the vehicle, and it was that response which led deputies to Andrews.
