SHIVELY, KY (WAVE) - The driver of a car wanted in connection with a deadly hit-and-run on Dixie Highway has surrendered to police.

Lt. Colonel Josh Myers, assistant chief of the Shively Police Department, said tips about the car came pouring in after information about it was released during an Oct. 30 news conference.
