Des Moines Police believe they’ve found the S.U.V. that was involved in a fatal hit-and-run late Saturday night. Des Moines police have impounded a black 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee. A 36-year-old Des Moines woman, Angela Marie Arellano, owns the Jeep. Police have issued a warrant for her arrest as a “material witness” to the accident.
Three Des Moines teens were walking across a street when the Jeep struck a 13-year-old boy and 17-year-old girl and ran over them. The 13-year-old has died; the 17-year-old is in critical condition at a Des Moines hospital. Another boy was hit by the Jeep’s side mirror but was not seriously injured.
In a news release issued late Sunday night, Des Moines police said the Jeep’s owner may be a passenger in a blue 1990 Toyota Celica with Iowa plates.
