OCEAN SPRINGS, MS -- It has been over 3 months since 16-year-old Kaytlynn Brann was struck on the side of the road by a truck, which then fled the scene. The truck was driven by an off-duty Pascagoula police officer. Kaytlynn died in the hospital.

The family says that the officer has received preferential treatment that is helping him avoid any criminal charges in the accident.

"He told us that the man had left the scene. He came back 16 minutes later. That he refused to blow, then 45 minutes later he did blow positive, and four hours later they did a blood draw. That he would be arrested and he would stay in jail until Monday morning. He would bond out and then we found out the next day that that was not, in fact, true," Kristen Brann said.

"I'm afraid of it becoming a cover-up. That's what I'm afraid of," Keith Brann said.
