PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The driver in a hit-and-run that left a woman dead turned herself in, according to Philadelphia Police.
Police say 34-year-old Jessica Ledee-Davila is being charged with involuntary manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident, simple assault and reckless endangerment.
Ledee-Davila was reportedly involved in two accidents Monday evening before fleeing the scene on foot.
The first accident happened when she rear-ended another driver on the 1800 block of Cambria Street around 8:30 p.m., causing minor damage, according to police.
As she was fleeing the scene, police say, Ledee-Davila jumped the curb and struck 22-year-old Rhiannon Broderick who was laying on a mattress on the sidewalk. Broderick later died from her injuries at an area hospital.
She also allegedly struck a 29-year-old man who was laying next to Broderick. He was transferred to an area hospital and refused treatment.
Police say the driver she rear-ended followed her to the 2700 block of North Coral Street where they got into a brief argument.
She then fled on foot without providing any of her personal information.
