PRIEST RIVER, Idaho -- The family of a Priest River man killed in a hit-and-run crash have found some comfort knowing he died a hero.

56-year-old Scott Moore was helping a family who slid off the road when he was hit and killed along I-90 in Spokane Friday night.

The family in that car told Moore’s family Scott was pulling a little girl to safety from an oncoming car, when Scott was hit instead.

24-year-old Robert Dyer faces vehicular homicide charges in connection to Scott’s death.

Investigators said Dyer hit Scott with his Camaro, and then didn’t stop.

Scott leaves behind a family with three grandchildren, including a newborn who is just three weeks old.

The 9-year-old girl who Scott saved left a voicemail for Scott’s family calling him her “angel”.

The family is planning a funeral for Scott next month in Saint Maries, Idaho.
