The driver of a pickup that was involved in a fatal hit-and-run in Kingsville last month has turned himself in to police.
KRIS-TV reports the crash occurred on September 28 when a trailer detached from a pickup on US-77 near E. Corral Avenue. The trailer crossed the median and struck a Ford F-150, causing the vehicle to lose control and roll several times.
46-year-old Jonathan Limas was ejected from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the truck, now identified as a 26-year-old man from Brownsville, left the scene of the crash.
Police reported Monday that the driver who left the scene had turned himself in but did not release the driver’s name. No arrests have been made, and the accident remains under investigation.
Kingsville PD added that leaving the scene of an accident involving death or serious injury is a third-degree felony punishable to 2 to 10 years in prison.
