MIAMI (AP) - Authorities have made an arrest in a hit-and-run crash that killed a 59-year-old South Florida woman.

Miami-Dade Police say Candelaria Fabian Ruiz was attempting to cross a street Tuesday when she was struck and killed by a JeepCherokee driven by Marie Registre. The driver allegedly fled the scene.

Detectives developed leads that led them to 58-year-old Registre.

She has been charged with leaving the scene of a traffic crash involving a death and careless driving.

It was not immediately clear if she had obtained an attorney.
