A Cheyenne man was arrested this week in connection with a hit-and-run crash that claimed the life of a woman.
Kyle Ziemer, 32, was arrested late Wednesday on felony charges of aggravated vehicular homicide and for driving under the influence.
Police responded to a fatal hit-and-run accident Wednesday evening in Cheyenne near the intersection of Nationway and Hot Springs Avenue. The incident occurred as a woman was walking in the median on Nationway, according to reports.
Ziemer, while driving a 2014 Chevy Silverado pickup truck, swerved into the median, struck the woman and fled the scene prior to police arriving, according to police reports.
Ziemer was later located, arrested and booked.
The woman was transported to the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center, where she succumbed to her injuries.
