A 36-year-old woman was struck and killed Thursday night on FM 219 in what authorities are calling a “hit and run.”
DPS spokesman Dub Gillum said the accident occurred about 10:30 p.m. The vehicle believed to be involved in the accident was located about 1:30 a.m., but the driver was not found.
The Erath County Sheriff’s Office later arrested 22-year-old Raul Jimenez, but details surrounding the arrest or identity of the victim have not been released.
Jimenez has been charged with intoxication manslaughter and is being held at the Erath County Jail.
