Jeremy Jay Sims.

TUCSON, AZ (AP) - A driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash in Tucson is facing a second-degree murder charge, police said Thursday.

They said 26-year-old Jeremy Jay Sims was driving impaired when the collision occurred around 3 a.m. Wednesday and excessive speed also may have been a factor.

Police said Sims fled the scene on foot after the crash and was later found at his home.

He’s been booked into the Pima County Jail and it was unclear Thursday if he has a lawyer yet.

Police said the driver of the other vehicle died at the scene. She’s been identified as 28-year-old Fedyst Fomeche.
