TUCSON - The driver who was involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident early last Saturday morning in midtown has turned herself in to Tucson Police.
Rosanne Inzunza, 28, turned herself in to Traffic detectives at the Tucson Police Department this afternoon. She was arrested for one count of Failure to Remain at the Scene of Collision Involving a Death, a Class 2 Felony.
At about 2:23 a.m. on May 19, Tucson Police officers responded to reports of a single-vehicle collision near East Golf Links and South Swan Road. Officers found a 2005 Jeep Liberty that had collided with a tree, and 35-year-old Bernadette Macias in the front passenger's seat, suffering from severe injuries.
Emergency medical personnel responded and transported Macias to a hospital, where she later succumbed to her injuries, TPD officials state.
Investigators determined that the vehicle was traveling west on Golf Links Road, just east of Swan Road, when Inzunza lost control, left the road, and struck a tree. She then fled the scene before officers arrived.
