MIDLAND - An arrest has been made in connection with a 2014 deadly hit and run accident in Midland.

Midland Police tell NewsWest 9, Kelly Bradberry, 21, was arrested after officials were able to identify her vehicle as the one involved in an accident back in October of 2014.

Bradberry's vehicle, a 2004 Jeep Liberty, was located by police on Saturday, May 16. An officer identified the Jeep as the vehicle that Midland Police Department has been searching for in the aftermath of an accident that killed 27-year-old Francisco Iglecias in the 2200 block of North Midland Drive on the night of Oct. 22. Officers confirmed that Bradberry was behind the wheel at the time of the accident, obtained a warrant for manslaughter and subsequently arrested Bradberry on Thursday, May 21.

Midland Police and Fire Departments responded to the accident at 11:59 on Oct. 22 near the intersection of Midland Drive and Neely Avenue, where they found citizens attempting to perform CPR on Iglecias, who was later pronounced deceased on scene.

The investigation revealed that a black Chevrolet Camaro was traveling southbound in the outside lane and Bradberry was traveling southbound in the inside lane at the time of the accident. Both vehicles faced a green light while Iglecias was walking in a crosswalk on Midland Drive. Iglecias was first struck by Bradberry's Jeep, knocking him to the ground, and then run over by the black Camaro. Bradberry fled the scene and police put out notice for officers and the public to search for a green SUV with damage to the front right portion.

Bradberry is currently in custody at Midland County Central Detention Center on a $1 million bond.
