LYON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) - The man accused of hitting an elderly couple outside of a Lyon Township Wal-Mart faced a judge Thursday.

7 Action News first showed you the accident and surveillance video captured by Wal-Mart cameras.

Rodney Snider, 65, of Lyon Township is facing charges of driving with a suspended license and leaving the scene of an injury accident.

“Being involved in a crash like this where people are injured, then leaving the scene, they could have died,” said Judge Michael Batchik, at the 52nd District Court in Novi.

“I made sure they were okay. I saw them on the bench,” responded Snider.

Judge Batchik set his bond at $10,000.

Sources tell 7 Action News the victims were a 74-year-old woman and an 82-year-old man from South Lyon.
