An Omaha man has been arrested and charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
The Omaha Police Department reports 27-year-old Edwin Elvir-Palma has been booked in Douglas County, where he is incarcerated.
Elvir-Palma is accused to running over 34-year-old Margarito Nava-Luna of Omaha and driving away.
