DRIVER FOUND: Hit-And-Run Death
Charges have been filed in a hit-and-run accident that killed a man in downtown Des Moines in March.
Des Moines police say they have the driver involved in custody. Twenty-six-year-old Kristine Gordon is charged with failure to render aid causing death, driving while barred, and failure to yield to a pedestrian.
Police say Gordon was driving when her vehicle struck Clayton Payne in the early morning hours of March 16th, as Payne was trying to cross the street at 6th Avenue and College. He died from his injuries the following day.
Gordon has been in the Polk County Jail for about a week on unrelated charges.
