FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — Christopher Shane Grubbs told a Forsyth County judge that he spent 20 years as a paramedic and a state highway trooper working to preserve and protect life.

But in August 2013, he ended the life of 21-year-old Richard Bernard Byers Jr., who Grubbs fatally hit with his pickup and left lying in the road overnight in the rain, according to the Winston-Salem Journal. 

Byers was found the next morning and taken to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, where he died of his injuries.
