HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - A 28-year-old Colorado man is accused of leaving the scene of a deadly Hutchinson accident, striking a parked car and running away from the second scene.

KWCH-TV (https://bit.ly/1n14S1v ) reports Homer Beebe was driving west when his SUV collided with a pickup driven by Pedro Perez of Hutchinson at 1:50 a.m. Sunday. Perez died at the scene.

Police say Beebe fled the second accident while his passenger, a 28-year-old Palisade, Colorado, woman, remained in the SUV with head injuries. She was taken to a Wichita hospital, where she was in serious condition Sunday.

Beebe was arrested at a Hutchinson home later Sunday morning. He was being held on a charge of failure to report and leaving the scene of a fatality accident.

It was unclear whether he had obtained an attorney.
