SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - Police in Springfield, Oregon, believe a driver hit a pedestrian and fled with him on top of her car, carrying the man for 11 blocks before removing him and leaving him in the street to die.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1xkVyyy ) that Isabel Gloria McDaniel of Veneta was arrested Saturday.

She’s accused of driving the car that struck Daniel Ortiz-Reynaga on Thursday, flipping him on top of the vehicle. Sgt. Rich Charboneau says investigators believe she took the victim off the car and kept going.

Ortiz-Reynaga was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Isabel McDaniel remained jailed Monday. Charboneau says McDaniel is scheduled for arraignment Monday afternoon on a felony hit-and-run charge, where she may have a lawyer appointed.

Police say McDaniel’s husband, Gary Louis McDaniel, was cited for tampering with evidence.
