Police have identified a suspect involved in a fatal hit and run pedestrian crash in Mattapan, Massachusetts.
Massachusetts State Police have charged 39-year-old Anthony E. Buchanan of Dorchester with offenses including motor vehicle homicide while operating under the influence, leaving the scene of a crash that caused death, speeding and a marked lanes violation.
The victim was identified as 46-year-old Johnette Sims, of Dorchester.
Investigations determined that Buchanan was operating a rented 2016 Dodge Charger erratically and at high speed eastbound on Morton Street.
Police say the Charger struck Sims at a crosswalk at the intersection of Morton and Canterbury Street at around 10:30 p.m. Saturday. The Charger's driver then stopped briefly and drove away toward American Legion Highway.
Buchanan turned himself in early Sunday morning.
Police say the Charger was recovered on Pleasant Street and is being processed for evidence.
Buchanan is being held in the State Police Barracks in Milton, awaiting arraignment Tuesday at Boston Municipal Court.
