A Harker Heights woman turned herself in to the Harker Heights Police Department Thursday afternoon after a felony warrant was issued for her arrest over a deadly hit-and-run that happened in November 2017.
Sherry McCluer, 60, surrendered herself at 4:22 p.m. Thursday.
Her warrant stemmed from the death of pedestrian Mario M. Tobar, 46, who died at Seton Medical Center after he was struck and fatally injured by a southbound vehicle while walking across South Amy Lane at the intersection of Dale Earnhardt Drive. Police said the vehicle drove off, never stopping to render aid.
McCluer was taken to the Bell County Jail, where she was arraigned by Justice of the Peace Bill Cooke on a charge of "accident involving death" early Friday morning. Her bond was set at one million dollars.
Tobar's family is still grieving from the loss. His fiance, April Martinez, said she and her kids are still devastated. Martinez said she and her fiance walked everywhere, and he was walking to the store the day of the deadly crash.
She said she has to see the spot where he was struck every single day because she lives in the area. Tobar's fiance said the arrest will not bring her Mario back.
"My son, he has moments, she lives in Fort Worth now, but they have their moments where they break down, all of us do, because it's hard," she said.
Martinez said she continues to seek justice for her fiance's death.
"[McCluer] was out probably celebrating the holidays with her family and I had to take my kids to the grave," Martinez said.
"Because she took him from us for life, I really just wish they would leave her in there and she would die in there. I mean, I'm not hateful like that, but I don't think she should be out walking around at all," she said.
