The Delaware State Police have arrested and charged a 19-year-old Bear, Delaware woman in connection with a fatal hit and run crash that occurred on September 25, 2012 in Glasgow.
Brenda M. Nazario was charged on Tuesday, after the completion of the investigation into the fatal hit and run crash that left one woman dead and another injured.
Maria Eldreth, 52 and Judith Johnson, 67, were walking in an eastbound direction on Corporate Boulevard in Pencader Corporate Center when they were struck from behind by a 2002 Honda CRV traveling eastbound on Corporate Boulevard operated by Nazario. Eldreth and Johnson were taken to Christiana Hospital Trauma Center where Johnson was treated and released with non life threatening injuries. Eldreth later died.
Troopers said Nazario fled in the Honda and failed to stop to render aid for either victim. At approximately 3 p.m. the same day, Nazario went to Delaware State Police Troop 2 and reported that she had struck an unknown object on Interstate 95.
Detectives were able to connect Nazario and the Honda CRV to the crash that occurred earlier the same day.
After an investigation by the State Police and the Delaware Attorney General’s Office, detectives obtained warrants charging Nazario with Leaving the Scene of an Accident.
She was arraigned and released on $10,000 unsecured bond.
