OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - The Omaha woman who fled after her car smashed into another vehicle and left a man dead has been arrested.

Omaha police say 18-year-old Justice Wiggins was arrested Sunday on suspicion of leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Police say the incident began early Sunday when a Mercury Sable struck a Dodge Charger and then drove away. The driver of the Charger followed in an attempt to get a license plate number.

After traveling a short distance, the Mercury ran a stop sign and hit a Jeep Cherokee.

The Jeep rolled onto its roof, and its driver, 23-year-old Brycel Jackson, was killed.

Police say five people were in the Mercury. The driver and a passenger fled, and three others were taken to hospitals for treatment of minor injuries.
