A decade has past since a woman was killed in a hit and run in Delano, and Friday an arrest was finally made. 

Pedro Sanchez was on Delano’s Most Wanted list for a 2009 hit and run. 

Delano Police say 10 years ago Sanchez hit Brenda Wyatt in the 700 block of Fremont Street.

Sanchez left his car and fled the scene on foot – leaving Wyatt pinned underneath the vehicle.

Wyatt died as a result of those injuries.

Earlier this month, the Delano Police Department received a tip leading to the arrest of Sanchez.

With the help of the US Marshals Service, Sanchez was located in Fresno Friday and taken into custody.

He will soon be extradited to Kern County.
