INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (April 18, 2015) — The family of a woman who was severely injured by a hit and run driver has died. Tanya Turman, 41, died Saturday evening at Methodist Hospital. Family members say Turman died peacefully with her family by her side.

Turman was hit March 26 while she was walking to the bus stop at Bolton Avenue and Staughton Drive on the northeast side. After weeks of heartfelt pleas from the family, an arrest was made. Police say Corey Patrick, 31, turned himself in. Investigators say Patrick called police wanting to turn himself in. He was interviewed and confessed to leaving the scene after the accident. The red SUV seen in surveillance video of the accident was also recovered.

Patrick now faces charges of failure to stop after accident resulting in serious bodily injury. Prosecutors recently said they could up those charges if Turman died.
