A 42-year-old man is facing a murder charges after a fatal hit-and-run in the 500 block of Seventh Street West the night of Monday, July 29.

One pedestrian was killed and two others were injured when Steven Rademacher hit them with his vehicle shortly after 9 p.m. Monday, according to a news release from the Williston police. The two people who were hurt were being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The name and age of the person killed was not available Tuesday afternoon. Rademacher drove over a curve, into a yard and then on into a nearby alley Monday night, Sgt. Detective Dustin Celander of the Williston Police Department said Monday night. Rademacher left the area and was arrested several hours later. The formal charges against Rademacher had not been filed Tuesday afternoon and few further details were available. A bond hearing for Rademacher had not yet been scheduled. Monday’s death is the third homicide so far this year in Williston. In late April, a 1-month-old child died in a hotel room.

His parents, Tank and Hannah McMillin, were arrested and originally charged with child abuse. Last week, Hannah McMillin was charged with murder.

In early May, Jay LePage was killed after a confrontation by The Shop Bar in downtown Williston. Justin Crites, 26, was arrested in June and charged with manslaughter in connection with the death.
