An Augusta woman has been arrested in connection with a fatal hit-and-run collision last weekend, authorities said.
The 33-year-old woman was arrested Thursday afternoon by the Butler County Sheriff’s Office, according to a post on the Andover Police Department’s Facebook page.
Jared K. Wright, 38, was last seen alive hitchhiking in an area of Yorktown and U.S. 54 shortly after midnight on Saturday. About four hours later, two people delivering Wichita Eagle newspapers discovered Wright’s body on Tawakoni Road between Southwest 130th and Southwest 140th streets, according to Butler County Sheriff Kelly Herzet.
Wright was missing his socks, shoes and pants, Herzet said. Detectives later found those items lying in a ditch 6 miles away, east of Yorktown Road on U.S. 54 near the Andover YMCA. Detectives also found a cellphone.
More details about the arrest will be released Friday morning, authorities said.
