EUGENE, Ore. -- The driver involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash in Eugene over the weekend turned himself in to police Monday morning, according to authorities.

Danny Ray Young, 49, of Springfield has been charged with hit-and-run and driving while suspended after turning himself in, police said.

Authorities also reported that the victim was a 40-year-old woman who had a bicycle at the time of the crash. It is unclear if she was riding the bicycle at the time.

According to officials, Young hit the pedestrian at West 11th Avenue and Olive Street at 8:40 p.m. Sunday. The light-colored, full-size truck then left the area.

Eugene police located the truck that was involved in the crash earlier Monday morning, before Young turned himself in.

The Eugene Police Major Collision Investigation Team is still investigating.
