Iowa News

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A Davenport woman has pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of a fatal accident in the hit-and-run death of a pedestrian in May.

The Quad-City Times reports that 54-year-old Michelle Fix agreed to the deal in which prosecutors agreed to drop a speeding violation.

She entered the plea last week and faces up to five years in prison when she’s sentenced in January.

Prosecutors said Fix was behind the wheel on May 1 when she hit 48-year-old Alfonso Reid Jr., of Davenport, as he walked across the road. Reid died from his injuries on May 8.

Police said Fix did not stop to render aid to Reid and instead sped off. Her vehicle, which had front-end damage, was found abandoned May 6.
