Vigil held for disabled man killed by hit-and-run driver



CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Friends and family of a 50-year-old man hit and killed while crossing the street gathered for a candle light vigil Wednesday night.

Carrington Ware was leaving his fiancee's home Saturday night on Pebblebrook Drive to catch the bus on Alleghany Street when someone hit him and kept driving.

Ware had cerebral palsy.

The vigil was at the intersection of Pebblebrook and Alleghany in west Charlotte.

"Jake would do things the doctors said he couldn't,” family member Alexia Fox said. “Jake was only supposed to live to 12, but he was 50 years old. Jake did everything except for drive. Jake was an inspiration to all and he always will be."

Police have not made any arrests in the case and are asking anyone who may have seen a dark-colored SUV in the area around 10 p.m. Saturday night to call police.
