CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A driver faces several charges stemming from what authorities say was a hit-and-run in the parking lot of a bar in Linn County.

County court records say Bret Klima, 30, of Urbana, is charged with vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of a fatal accident and with other crimes. His attorney didn’t immediately return an Associated Press call Wednesday. Klima’s next court hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.

The crash happened around 1:30 a.m. Dec. 1 in the parking lot of Bully’s North in Center Point, about 20 miles (32.2 kilometers) north of Cedar Rapids.

Kimberley Swore, 50, of Center Point, died at the scene, authorities said. Another pedestrian suffered minor injuries.
