A man has been arrested after police say he hit a woman with his car, killing her, around 10 p.m. Saturday in the 4300 block of Berke St. at Seminary Road. Officers received a call regarding a woman laying in the roadway near the Southgate Manor apartments, and discovered she had been hit by car upon arrival. The woman, who has only been identified as 52 years old, was transported to an area hospital where she was pronounced dead. The man who police say hit the woman with his car has been identified as Pedro Garcia, 33. Police say Garcia struck the woman, who was walking along the road, and failed to stop and help her.
