OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 27-year-old man will be charged with vehicular homicide for the hit-and-run death of a pedestrian in west Omaha.

A news release from the Douglas County attorney’s office Wednesday says Orling Carrasco-Zelaya also will be charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident and third offense drunken driving. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could speak for Carrasco-Zelaya.

The office says Carrasco-Zelaya also goes by the name of Edwin Elvir-Palma, but Carrasco-Zelaya is on his Honduran birth certificate. A police report says Carrasco-Zelaya has been a fugitive from U.S. immigration authorities since 2012.

Police say 34-year-old Margarito Nava-Luna was killed around 2:30 a.m. Saturday while walking in the westbound lane of street where there’s no sidewalks.
