84-Year-Old Man Accused in Fatal Hit and Run, Will Not Get His License Back

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): The 84-year-old New Haven man charged with hitting and killing 25-year-old Haley Nancarrow will not be getting his license back anytime soon.

According to our partners in news at 21 Alive, Howard Lininger was formally charged earlier this month, that's when Lininger’s license was taken away. He entered his plea December 10, to a charge of felony failure to stop after an accident resulting in injury or death. He was charged in the November 18 death of the Fort Wayne woman.

On Tuesday, Deputy Prosecutor Adam Mildred told 21 Alive, that an Allen County judge denied his request to have his driving privileges returned after hearing testimony on Lininger's previous hit-and-runs.

“In 2011, he previously left the scene of a property damage crash and then also, the other matter where he said, that 'law enforcement wasn't able to prove it was him' – in 2008. Given those circumstances and all the surrounding circumstances, it was appropriate to prevent him from being able to operate a motor vehicle,” said Mildred.
