San Luis Woman Accused Of Hit And Run

A San Luis woman is accused of hitting a man with her SUV Sunday night and leaving the scene where he died. 42-year-old Margarita Belen appeared in court Monday to hear charges she may be facing. The Yuma County Sheriff's Office says they received a report of a possible man down on Highway 95 and Avenue “H”. Alfonso Zavala of the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office says the report came from a witness who saw a red Chevrolet strike a pedestrian walking on the south side of the Highway.
 
Detectives interviewed Belen because she was registered to the license. She was then arrested and booked into the Yuma County Jail. The judge posted the bond at nearly $293,000. She will appear in court again this week.
