Phenix City police investigate pedestrian's death

PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) – It will be up to a Russell County grand jury to decide if a teenager will be charged after reportedly hitting and killing a pedestrian.

The Phenix City police department says the investigation is still underway in the death of 31-year-old Nathan Wombles.

On Sunday, he was hit by a 1987 Jeep Wrangler that was driven by a 16-year-old on Bonanza Drive.

Wombles was taken to Midtown Medical Center where he later died.

His mother Bunny Mathis is heartbroken. 

"This was the wrong person, it happened to the wrong person, it happened to my baby and I saw him and it just kills me, it's killing me," Mathis said. 

She said she was sitting on the porch with her family, including her 4-year-old grandson who watched his father get hit by the teen in the Jeep. 

"My heart's gone, it will never be the same again," she said. 

Nathan was married to Jessica Wombles, and they have two children – a 4-year-old son and a 2-month-old daughter.

The memorial service for Nathan will be Thursday, April 30 at 3 p.m. at the McMullen Funeral Home in Columbus.

If you have any information please call the police at (334) 298-0611.
