NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) - Thursday morning the suspected driver will face a judge, more than a week after the accident.
Town of Niagara Police say they will be releasing more details Thursday morning, but we're hearing from the victim's mother who is shocked, angry and heartbroken.
The victim's mother Dana Rivers said, "He should have stopped, he hit my daughter and a little boy, no he should have stopped."
Dana Rivers can't believe that 55-year-old Francis Maikranz, the man arrested for a deadly hit and run that killed her 26-year-old daughter, a mother of two , was found 10 days after the accident at a home in the Town of Niagara just blocks away from where the victim's family lived their entire lives.
Dana Rivers said, "In my own neighborhood, this is my neighborhood. I've lived here for I don't even know how many years."
A day after police released an image of the suspect's car, police say a citizen tip led them to Maikranz and his car at a home on Pretoria Street.
"Thank you. Anybody who gave up any information as to where this guy was. I thank all of you," said Dana Rivers.
The victim's family thinks they might have seen the suspected driver everyday and had no idea who he was.
The 55-year-old driver is facing a felony charge, leaving the scene of a deadly accident, and could face more charges later Thursday morning. It's unclear if alcohol or any other factors were involved.
