WEST CHESTER, Ohio (WXIX) - A driver was indicted this week in connection with a hit-skip accident that killed a pedestrian in West Chester Township earlier this year.

It happened in late May on Muhlhauser Road near Princeton Glendale Road.

A security guard from a nearby building found 46-year-old Sherry Haywood, of Cincinnati, dead on the side of the road, according to West Chester police.

Haywood died from multiple traumatic injuries, according to a report from the Butler County Coroner’s Office.

Police released pictures of the Ford Edge they say hit her. The car was found at the Willows Apartment Complex off Chesterdale Drive in Springdale.

On Wednesday, police arrested Miguel Angel Gomez Alvarez allegedly in connection with Haywood’s death.

Authorities say he is the one who hit the 46-year-old with his car before fleeing the scene.

A Butler County grand jury indicted Alvarez on charges of vehicular manslaughter and failure to stop after an accident.
