PORT ORCHARD, Wash. (AP) - Charging documents say a Washington state man accused in a fatal hit and run near Port Orchard is known by fellow ferry commuters to be an erratic driver.

The Kitsap Sun reports that 33-year-old Dominic Landric Dixon was charged on Tuesday with felony hit and run for the March 22 crash that killed 34-year-old Katherine Phillips as she attempted to pour gas into a car stalled on Sedgwick Road.

A Southworth ferry commuter told investigators the day after the crash that she saw a gold Chevrolet Impala drive over the road flares while other cars were avoiding them. She said she recognized the car as belong to a fellow ferry commuter - Dixon.
