Man Denied Bond In Hit-And-Run That Killed Officer

ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – The man accused in the hit and run crash of a metro Atlanta police officer has been denied bond.

Henry County police say 43-year-old Ruben Marin-Garibay of Stockbridge was arrested Tuesday and charged with vehicular homicide, serious injury by vehicle, failure to maintain lane and hit and run.

He made his first court appearance Wednesday morning.

Police say Henry County Police officer Elgin Daniel was helping a stranded driver who had run out of gas when a Ford F-250 pickup truck slammed into him Monday night. Authorities say the truck also hit John Cook, an employee of a roadside service company who had stopped to help. Cook was recovering at a hospital.
