PHOENIX (AP) – Phoenix police say a driver has been arrested in the death of a pedestrian.
Police spokeswoman Maggie Cox says the incident occurred Wednesday around 7 p.m. around Indian School Road and 81st Avenue.
Investigators say a car driven by 32-year-old Anthony Cancilliere hit the 55-year-old victim as she was walking outside of a crosswalk.
The victim was later pronounced dead at a hospital. Cox did not release her name.
Cancilliere allegedly drove away from the scene but officers located him a few miles away.
Investigators say they determined he was under the influence of drugs.
He has since been booked on suspicion of DUI involving drugs and failure to stay at a scene of the collision.
It wasn’t known Thursday if he had an attorney.
