A Florida woman is behind bars for the death of a cyclist who police say she killed in a hit-and-run crash before altering her appearance in an effort to try and elude law enforcement several years ago.

Emily Fasano, 25, currently stands accused of one count of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office. A no-bond warrant was issued for her arrest last week and she turned herself in at the Broward County jail on Tuesday.

The underlying incident occurred on Sept. 7, 2022, just outside of Fasano’s residence on North Hiatus Road in the medium-sized, suburban city of Plantation in South Florida. At 7:38 p.m. that night, Fasano allegedly veered into a bike lane and struck a cyclist with her 2017 Jeep Renegade, according to the Plantation Police Department.
