On Saturday, January 24, 2015 a 63 year old Dorchester man by the name of Leon Haywood a plumber for the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority was the victim of a hit and run car accident . Leon was left for dead, this was an atrocious violent act against a human being. The perpetrator of this vehicular hit-and-run has not yet been caught.
Leon was the primary breadwinner for his home his wife Jestina Haywood is physically challenged due to a debilitating stroke she was afflicted with over 8 years ago.
Leon is currently in the hospital in very critical condition ; he has two broken legs, broken ribs ,a broken jaw head trauma and is also on dialysis.
