UNCW student charged in double fatal hit-and-run on I-40 during winter storm gets lower bond


RALEIGH, NC (WWAY) -- A college student accused of killing two Good Samaritans on Interstate 40 during a winter storm last month, was in court Thursday morning as a Wake County judge decided to lower his bond.

Marshall Hudson Doran, of Kure Beach, was originally charged with two counts of second-degree murder following the Feb. 13 incident and a magistrate set his bond at $5 million. The charge was later lowered to felony death by a motor vehicle, and his bond was reduced to $500,000.

On Thursday, the 21 year old's bond was lowered again to $400,000 during a bond hearing.

During the hearing, a prosecutor revealed alleged statements Doran made to Wake County deputies when he was arrested.

Trucker bears some responsibility, but wasn't charged? He appears to be joking about sleeping behind the wheel at times. He had no right to engage 2 pedestrians to stand on an active interstate traffic lane to attempt to move his rig after he had an accident, without waiting for police to shut down the interstate lanes his rig was blocking at night. He failed to follow proper safety protocols.

The truck driver wasn't the

The truck driver wasn't the one driving while impaired. The truck driver did not run over the two men and flee the scene. This is all on the man who was driving while impaired and killed those men. He is the one who decided to ingest an impairing substance and get behind the wheel of the car, not the truck driver. The truck driver did not break the law and shouldn't be charged. It is not his fault that another was driving while impaired.
