An arrest has been made in a fatal hit-and-run in Ellis County by the Texas Department of Public Safety.
26-year-old Sandra Maritza Molina of Ennis is now facing a charge of failure to stop and render aid involving death.
On February 1, Alonzo Burrow Jr., 36, was fatally hit.
Detectives say that Burrow was walking in the northeast lane of traffic on FM 1182 when he was struck and killed by a silver 2006 Toyota Sienna.
Relatives say that they think that Burrow had been walking to his mother’s residence when he was killed.
Detectives later learned that Molina had been driving that vehicle. They added that she left the scene and never reported the wreck.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said that this apprehension was made possible by citizens who offered tips to the Ellis County Sheriff’s Office and Ellis County Crime Stoppers.
