Louisville Sports Anchor Indicted in Fatal Hit and Run

FTVLive told you about the fatal accident that involved a Louisville station's news car back in January. 

Now, a grand jury indicted WHAS weekend Sports Anchor Jeff Woods on charges of failing to stop following an accident that killed a pedestrian.

A Jefferson County grand jury indicted Woods, who was driving a station news car on one count of failing to stop and render aid after the Jan. 23 accident.

Marriott Hotel employee Fontaine Jeffery, 58, was crossing at Jefferson and Second streets when she fell for an unknown reason as she was leaving work, according to Louisville Metro Police. Two vehicles hit Jeffery and she died that night at University of Louisville Hospital.

Witnesses told police the second vehicle was from WHAS and police impounded a station vehicle as part of the investigation.

"We've cooperated with the investigation from the beginning and will let the judicial process run its course," WHAS General Manager Linda Danna said in a statement sent to The Courier-Journal.

Failure to stop and render aid is a class D felony, punishable by one to five years in prison and a fine of $1,000 to $10,000.

Woods joined WHAS as the weekend Sports Anchor in May. He worked more than eight years at WBKO-TV in Bowling Green covering Western Kentucky University, his alma mater, before he was hired at WHAS.
