One was arrested for a hit-and-run that left a woman dead last week. 

According to the San Jose Police Department, the suspect, Kim Ngan Thi Mai, 60, was arrested on February 11 at her home after police tracked her car as the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run. 

Mai was booked into the Santa Clara County Jail and charged with one count of felony hit-and-run. She posted bail and is no longer in custody. 

Originally, a U-Haul truck was believed to have hit the downed pedestrian, but after further investigation, officers determined the U-Haul did not hit the victim and is no longer wanted. 

The crash occurred on February 10, around 5:39 a.m. Officers were dispatched to the crash site at Morril Avenue and Knights Bridge Road and found a woman on the road. She was hit while crossing Merril Avenue outside of a crosswalk. 

The woman was hospitalized with major injured and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
