Hit And Run

A man suspected in a fatal hit-in-run in central California in which the victim’s body was dragged more than 8 miles is in critical condition after jumping from a three-story house while deputies tried to arrest him. Fresno Police Lt. Brian Valles told the Fresno Bee that 38-year-old Shawn Ginder was arrested by the Madera County Sheriff’s Office late Friday. Valles said Ginder jumped out of the three-story house in Bass Lake, a town about 50 miles northeast of Fresno, the site of Friday’s hit-and-run.

Police in central California are searching for the driver of a pickup truck that struck a woman walking her dog Friday and kept going, dragging her more than 8 miles to the parking lot of a hotel, where she was found dead. Fresno Police Lt. Bill Dooley says the 29-year-old woman was pushing a shopping cart and had her dog on a leash when she was hit by a gray or silver pickup truck. He says the man kept driving with the body of the woman trapped under his truck and stopped at a hotel, where a hotel guest called police after seeing the woman's remains dislodge from under the truck. 

A businessman has pleaded guilty in a suburban New York hit-and-run crash that killed the father of Nicki Minaj. A judge said Friday he would sentence the driver, Charles Polevich, to no more than a year in jail. Minaj's father, Robert Maraj, was struck while walking along a Long Island road in February 2021. Nassau County prosecutors say they disagree with the planned sentence, and widow Carol Maraj says she's “not happy.” Polevich admitted leaving the scene of the accident and tampering with evidence by parking his car in a garage and covering it with a tarp afterward.
