Kyler Forest Carlile was driving a pickup truck along with two passengers on Wayne Avenue early Sept. 20, when he noticed Currin, 19, walking, according to Prosecuting Attorney Mat Heck Jr.

Carlile offered Currin a ride and the group drove to the home of one of the passengers with Currin riding in the cargo area of the truck.

Once Carlile and his passengers arrived at the home, they noticed Currin was no longer in the back of the truck.

Carlile drove back through the way they came and passed Currin lying in the road injured, but he did not stop to check on him or call 911, according to the prosecutor’s office.

The coroner ruled Currin’s death as an accident, stating that the blunt force trauma was likely from falling or jumping from the moving vehicle.

Carlile’s arraignment is scheduled for Feb. 18.
