A Schurz man was killed in a hit-and-run accident in Reno on Dec. 9.

Johnny Powell, 50, was killed when a white four-door sedan struck and killed him. According to Reno police, Powell was laying in the road when he was struck.

It’s unclear why Powell was in the road.

The driver, 35-year old Juliana Howell of Reno, stopped briefly after she struck Powell, but fled the scene before officers arrived.

Howell turned herself in the next day, and is being held in the Washoe County Jail on probation charges. She is being held for a misdemeanor probation violation and felony failure to appear in court after paying bail.

The news release says the accident is still under investigation and charges are pending.
