Framingham man charged in fatal hit-run in Mansfield

A Framingham man pleaded not guilty Monday to charges that he struck and killed a pedestrian with his truck in Mansfield Sunday night, police said.

Hung Manh Ho, 57, was arraigned in Attleboro District Court on charges of motor vehicle homicide, leaving the scene of an accident after causing death, and driving under the influence of alcohol, Mansfield police Lieutenant Sam Thompson said in a telephone interview Monday. Ho is being held on $25,000 bail.

Mansfield police responded to reports of a pedestrian struck by a car at the intersection of Hope and Pratt streets at 9:32 p.m. The victim — identified as James Walker, 44, of Mansfield — was taken to Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro, where he later died from his injuries, Thompson said.

Witnesses told police that a white box truck struck the victim before speeding away. Shortly afterward, a Mansfield firefighter saw a vehicle matching that description driving in the wrong direction on North Main Street, officials said.

The vehicle, which had damage to both its hood and the driver’s side headlights, was stopped, and Ho was arrested.

State and Mansfield police and the Bristol district attorney’s office are investigating the crash, officials said.
