Police arrested an Indianapolis woman Sunday following a fatal hit-and-run accident Saturday on the Northeastside.

Morgan Mannix, 23, Indianapolis, was arrested after officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department found her black 2011 Toyota Camry.

She was taken to Wishard Memorial Hospital for a blood draw and then booked into the Arrestee Processing Center, said IMPD Sgt. Linda Jackson, on a preliminary charge of failure to stop after an accident causing death. Additional charges are possible, Jackson said in a release.
