WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - Worcester police say a man has been arrested on charges including motor vehicle homicide and third-offense drunken driving after a fatal hit-and-run.

Police said a 48-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man were standing near a parked car on Lincoln Street when they were hit just before 7 p.m. Saturday. Their names weren’t released. Friends told local media they are brother and sister.

A neighbor, Kathy Rosinvil, tells the Telegram & Gazette they had just gotten out of a car carrying groceries. She said the woman was dragged by the car more than the length of a football field.

Police said Sunday 29-year-old Daniel Depew of Ayer was arrested not long afterward when an officer saw a car like the one being sought.

Depew is being arraigned Monday. It’s not known if he has an attorney.
