Hayes says the injuries that were not present showed more than the injuries present. There were no injuries from the waist down, which indicated Mercer was lying in the road before he was hit.

Hayes says the person who called 911 that night was the person who hit Mercer. Police don't believe speed was a factor in the accident., and no criminal charges will be filed against the driver.
