The driver, Michael C. Ettipio of Lancaster, reportedly hit the teen after downing six beers. Ettipio was tracked down by Kirkland after following him to his driveway, putting him in his own car and taking him back to the scene of the fatal accident. Kirkland said he was determined to bring Ettipio to justice.

“I grabbed him by the back of his shirt and said: Let’s go,” Benny Kirkland, 40, told The Buffalo News. “You’re going to answer for what you did.”

“It’s in the news every single day,” said Lancaster Police Lt. Ronald Rozler, who broke down in tears during a news conference following Ettipio’s arraignment. “It’s a tragic event that changes so many lives. You’d hope at some point, people would get the message that it could happen to you.”

Ettipio has been charged with second-degree vehicular manslaughter, leaving the scene of a fatal accident, driving while intoxicated and failure to keep right. Police records indicate a roadside breath test showed Ettipio’s blood alcohol content was .225 percent — nearly three times the legal limit.

We don’t know about you, but here at NewsOne, we think Kirkland is a hero for bringing this man to justice. We need to recognize this brotha for helping out local law enforcement. Kirkland is a great example of a positive Black man who needs to honored for doing what he did not have to do.
