A second pedestrian hit by an alleged drunk driver on Demonbreun Street late last year has died.

Michael Brooksher and Tommy Allen were struck in the early morning hours of December 10.

Brooksher, 22, died two days later at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.  Allen, 23, passed away early Tuesday morning due to complications from his injuries, his family confirmed.

Trevor Bradshaw, 23, was behind the wheel of the car that struck the pair.

Police said he ran from the scene following the collision, leaving his wounded girlfriend, Erin Brown, behind.  

Both Bradshaw and Brown, 21, are free on bond pending a preliminary hearing later this month.

Each is charged with vehicular homicide, among other charges.

Brown is also charged because Bradshaw was driving her car.  She was the front seat passenger.

According to the arrest report, Brown gave her keys to Bradshaw and allowed him to operate her vehicle knowing he had been drinking that night and was drunk.

Donations to the Brooksher and Allen families can be made at any U.S. Bank to the T and B Foundation.
