GILBERT - One suspect is behind bars after a deadly hit and run in Gilbert.

It happened Saturday night in the westbound lane of the 202 just west of Gilbert.

The Department of Publics Safety says a man in a car rear-ended another car that had two people inside. The female passenger in that car was killed.

The driver of the first car then drove off but eventually turned himself in.

A DPS spokesperson tells 3TV, "We do have what we believe is an alcohol-related collision. We have one person that is now in custody and we're continuing that investigation."

The names of those involved in the wreck have not been released.
