SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) — Police in Springfield, Oregon, believe a driver hit a pedestrian and fled with him on top of her car, carrying the man for 11 blocks before removing him and leaving him in the street to die.
The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/1xkVyyy ) that Isabel Gloria McDaniel of Veneta was arrested Saturday.
She's accused of driving the car that struck Daniel Ortiz-Reynaga on Thursday, flipping him on top of the vehicle. Sgt. Rich Scharboneau says investigators believe she took the victim off the car and kept going.
Ortiz-Reynaga was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Isabel McDaniel remained jailed Monday. Scharboneau says McDaniel is scheduled for arraignment Monday afternoon on a felony hit-and-run charge, where she may have a lawyer appointed.
Police say McDaniel's husband, Gary Louis McDaniel, was cited for tampering with evidence.
