Man arrested for deadly DUI ten years later


Police in Delano say they've made an arrest in a deadly DUI case -- dating back ten years ago.

They say Pedro Sanchez was driving along Fremont Street in the early hours of February 8, 2009, when he hit a woman.

Brenda Wyatt was pinned under Sanchez's car.

She died from her injuries.

But, police say, Sanchez left the scene.

Earlier this month, the Delano Police Department received a tip that Sanchez was living in or around Fresno.

Delano Police asked the US Marshals Service for help.

Friday, Sanchez was found and arrested.

He has been booked into the Fresno County Jail, and will be transferred to Kern County, where he will face charges.
