CHARLOTTE, N.C. (FOX 46 CHARLOTTE) – The family of a 35-year-old man struck by a speeding muscle car while crossing Brookshire Blvd last month pleaded for answers at a Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police news conference Wednesday.

Police said Barry Cunningham was crossing the road just before 3 a.m. on July 31 when he was hit by a 2015-2021 Dodge Charger traveling northwest on Brookshire Boulevard at a high rate of speed.

Police said Cunningham was hit and flown across three travel lanes when he came to a rest next to the median.
