Arrests made in hit-and-run accident that killed brother of “The Rose Man”

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Three people have been arrested following a fatal hit-and-run accident in St. Louis that killed a man selling roses.

The accident happened late Sunday at the intersection of Natural Bridge and Farrar Street. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the victim was Jerrel Dean Nixon, the brother of Lee “The Rose Man” Nixon and one of his successors in selling roses and other sweet items at nightclubs and lounges.

Police say they have found the car involved in the accident, which was the third fatal wreck on Natural Bridge involving a pedestrian since April.

Lee Nixon sold roses for 30 years until he was the victim of a homicide in 2008. After his death, both Jerrel Nixon and Lee Nixon’s daughter, Lesia Nixon, took over the business.
