"People at the scene remained with him, great witnesses called 911 to report it right away," said Ron Roberts. The Public Information Officer for Kettering Police.
 
The victim's wife tells me she was nearby when her husband was hit. "I went to Kroger. He was heading over to Trader Joe's and he said he looked both ways nothing was coming. He was almost to the side walk when it happened."

After dispatch got a description of the car involved in the hit and run an officer saw the car on W. Stroop Road. "They were able to see it  saw the fresh damage in the front of the vehicle and made the traffic stop, said Roberts.

Ronald's wife is thanking those witnesses that stayed by her husband and helped police find the driver. "Usually they're not caught when they run away. They usually get away," said Donna. She says she's sorry this happened and she does not have any bad feelings towards the two teens arrested. "I can't really say I'm upset accidents happen. I just wished they would have stopped."  she says at this point she is only focused on her husband's recovery. "He's had surgery. He's improving greatly. He's strong, very strong, so hopefully  there will be a good outcome.

Justice is expected to make a full recovery. The passenger Timothy Swayne has already bonded out of jail. The driver Shelby Johnson is still in custody. Her bail has not yet been set.
