When a motorist is part of a car crash, he/she is expected by law to remain at the scene of the accident. This allows emergency personnel the opportunity to provide medical services and police the chance to make a report. A person who fails to remain at the scene is subject to serious charges. Despite these laws, a Brownsville woman played a big role in a deadly hit-and-run when she fled the scene of an accident.
The Brownsville woman was charged in an accident involving injury or death after a hit-and-run incident where another woman was killed. According to police, the woman’s body was found north of the FM 511 intersection on FM 803.
Investigators revealed that the victim was walking on the side of the road at the time of the accident. The driver drove off but later turned herself in after police released a warrant for her arrest. The woman’s bond was set at $15,000.
