The Frederick City Police are continuing an investigation after a homeless man was hit by an alleged drunk driver two weekends ago. They say the case is now being sent to a grand jury.
Cpt. Richard Hetherington with the Frederick Police Department says Ricky Shelton, 59, of Frederick, was sitting on a metal loading dock near the rear of the street when a vehicle driven by Anthony Cilluffo, 25, of Frederick, struck the loading dock, severally injuring Shelton.
“We believe the suspect had been drinking. He admitted as much that he had been drinking prior to the crash,” Hetherington says. “He was given the standardized field sobriety test and based on the results of those tests; we believe that he was at a level above the legal limit.”
Shelton was taken to shock trauma, where he later died this past weekend from his injuries.
