WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police have arrested a 23-year-old college student and charged her in connection with the death of a bicyclist in a hit-and-run crash Thursday night.

WPD's Traffic Unit arrested Judith Margaret Nemeth Saturday morning and charged her with felony hit and run and misdemeanor death by motor vehicle.

Investigators say she was driving the car that hit and and killed Zachary Paul Tyler, 27, Thursday night on Wrightsville Ave. near Lumina Station.

Last night officers found the car they believe was involved in the crash abandoned near the corner of Marsh Hawk Court and Duck Hawk Court in Wilmington after neighbors noticed a car matching the description and called police.

Police say Nemeth was processed into the New Hanover County detention facility under a $25,000 bond. Booking photo is attached.
