Timothy Kissida, 23, was not exactly the poster boy for the “cash for clunkers” program. Kissida is accused of killing Chuck Waldrop, 52, in a hit and run accident. He then went that day to a dealer and traded in the damaged car in the “cash for clunkers” program in Phoenix, Arizona.
Waldrop was riding his bicycle when when witnesses say a BMW speeding at about 80 miles an hour and swerving from side to side. It eventually collided with Waldrop but never stopped, according to those witnesses.
Kissida took the 1992 BMW to a Chevy dealership that day for a trade in — claiming that the damage was caused by hitting a Javelina. He is now charged with leaving the scene of a fatal injury accident and tampering with evidence.
