Suspect Arrested After Fiery Fatal Crash

KSAL StaffMarch 27, 2017

Police in Topeka say they’ve arrested a woman suspected of fleeing a fiery weekend crash that killed a man.

Police say 35-year-old Jeremy Gerhardt of Topeka died at the scene of the crash late Saturday. Police arrested the 56-year-old suspect on Sunday, though it wasn’t immediately clear Monday if formal charges had been filed.

Police say officers responding to a reported crash shortly before 11 p.m. Saturday found Gerhardt’s pickup truck that had hit a bridge pillar and on fire.

Police say witnesses reported that the pickup truck had been involved in an accident with a car, which sped away.
