After a four-month Volusia sheriff’s investigation into a crash that killed a scooter driver, a DeBary woman has been arrested and charged with leaving the scene.

Traffic detectives’ investigation into the May 10 crash determined driver Ashley Hill, 35 (DOB 10/1/1987) turned left onto Enterprise Road at Jena Drive near Deltona Middle School and into the path of the victim’s Suzuki scooter he was riding. The crash caused a head-on collision that ultimately resulted in the death of David Radosta, 33, of Deltona.

Detectives determined Hill left the scene after the crash without rendering aid to the victim or contacting law enforcement to report the crash. She returned to the scene after about a minute and 30 seconds, after other motorists in the area reported the crash and attempted first aid.

On Tuesday, a warrant was secured charging Hill with leaving the scene of a crash with death. She was arrested after turning herself in to the Branch Jail where she remains held on $25,000 bail.
