CMPD responded to a fatal hit & run accident Saturday evening at 9:56pm at the intersection of W.T. Harris Blvd & University City Blvd.  Investigators say the victim, who has not been identified, pending family notification, was crossing University City Blvd at the Harris Blvd intersection when Kadalhia Denise Johnson, 20, driving a 2009 Mercury Milan, struck the victim and continued driving.  MEDIC responded and pronounced the victim deceased while enroute to the hospital.  Johnson returned to the accident scene an hour later where she was taken to police headquarters and questioned.  She was then charged with Felony Hit & Run and booked at the Meck.

Investigators with the Major Crash Unit of CMPD say the victim was not using the crosswalk & walked against a ‘Do Not Walk’ sign.  Alcohol, drugs, & speed do not appear to be contributing factors to the case.
