Arrest made in fatal hit-and-run accident in Yuma


A 23-year-old man faces charges in a hit-and-run accident in which a 14-year-old Yuma girl was fatally injured when struck by a car while skateboarding.

Yuma police say Edgar Borquez faces charges of second-degree murder and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.

Police say Borquez's parents, 57-year-old Guadalupe Borquez and 54-year-old Olivia Borquez, were arrested on hindering prosecution charges, alleging that they concealed evidence.

Mary Rodriguez died Sunday evening at a Phoenix hospital of injuries suffered in the Saturday morning accident.

Police said the girl was struck while in a crosswalk at an intersection.

It's not immediately known whether Borquez or his parents have attorneys.
