CANCUN, MEXICO (AP) - Latin Grammy-winner Ana Barbara is under investigation in a hit-and-run in Cancun that left a 79-year-old woman dead.

Authorities in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, where the tourist resort is located, initially arrested the singer’s bodyguard.

But the victim’s family alleges that it was Ana Barbara who was driving _ and likely speeding _ when the vehicle hit the woman Sunday.

The bodyguard, Jose Gomez, was released Monday after posting bail.

Ana Barbara denied she was driving. She told the Televisa television network that she heard a noise then saw the victim on the ground.

Ana Barbara won a Latin Grammy in 2005 in the category of best album for “Loca de Amar.”
