January 8, 2018

BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts police say a Centerville woman turned herself in to authorities in connection with a fatal hit-and-run.

The Barnstable Police Department says 33-year-old Sarah Hunt told police she was the driver in the hit-and-run Friday night that killed 62-year-old John Pina. The Cape Cod Times reports Hunt turned herself in Saturday.

Police say Pina suffered severe trauma from being struck by a vehicle that fled the scene. He was taken to the hospital where was pronounced dead.

Pina’s cousin, Vanessa Santiago-Anderson says the family will always wonder if anything could have been done to save him, but says she doesn’t feel any anger toward Hunt.

Hunt is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in District Court in Barnstable on multiple charges, including motor vehicle homicide. She was released on recognizance.
