Phoenix police have a man in custody after a deadly hit and run crash Thursday night. At 52nd Avenue and Mc Dowell Road. Sergeant Trent Crump says the suspect driver had been behind another car that stopped to let a woman cross


the street, and as she was crossing, he changed lanes and hit her.

Crump says the suspect then parked his car in a parking lot and ran to a nearby home where police arrested him. Crump says vehicle registration records helped zero in on him.

The woman, who had been crossing illegally, was taken to a hospital where she died of her injuries. The driver was not impaired. The victim and suspect’s identity has not yet been released.
