COLORADO SPRINGS -

The suspect in a fatal hit and run turned himself in Tuesday. The Colorado Springs Police said 27-year old Vincent Fernando Garcia turned himself in from a hit and run crash resulting in one dead Sunday.

The crash happened on Austin Bluffs Parkway and Stanton Rd, where 18-year old UCCS student Zachary Schlagel was killed. The El Paso County Coroner's Office said he died from blunt force trauma due to the crash.

CSPD said Schlegel was crossing the eastbound lanes of Austin Bluffs with two other people, when a driver in a pick-up truck hit him and another pedestrian. The second victim suffered minor injuries, the third did not sustain any injuries. 

Garcia was booked into the Criminal Justice Center on charges of Vehicular Homicide, Accidents Involving Death or Personal Injuries, Duty to Report Accidents, and Reckless Driving.

CSPD says this is the 31st traffic-related fatality in Colorado Springs this year, which has risen from the 28 at this time last year. 

The investigation is ongoing.
