ODESSA - An Odessa man is behind bars after being busted in a deadly hit and run.

19-year-old Joshua Delgadillo has been charged with manslaughter and failure to stop and render aid following an accident on Wednesday night.

Police tell NewsWest 9, he was behind the wheel and ran a stop sign at the intersection of Del Rio and Avendia de Mexico in Odessa.

That's when he crashed into a pick-up.

The two people inside that truck, 25-year-old Jessie Fabian and 21-year-old Yvette Ochoa, were ejected.

We're told neither were wearing seat belts.

Fabian was pronounced dead at the scene and Ochoa was taken to the hospital.

Police say Delgadillo fled from the scene on foot but came back and was arrested.

Two girls in Delgadillo's car, ages 11 and 14, were also taken to the hospital.

Delgadillo is being held without bond.
