Updated On: Feb 26, 2020
The hit-and-run driver that hit Firefighter Armando Lopez while he was assisting at the scene of a crash on February 12, 2020 has been arrested. Special Traffic Investigations (STI) officers traced down the vehicle involved and obtained an arrest warrant for the driver. She had been identified as 46–year old Shiloh Danielle Hutchings.
Assistance in locating Hutchings was requested from officers of the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force. On Tuesday afternoon, the task force officers located Hutchings at a hotel on Dyer St and placed her under arrest. Hutchings was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility under a $100,000 bond, charged with Accident Involving Serious Bodily Injury
A tip from a citizen who “heard something” and stepped up provided the vital lead which lead to Hutchings’ arrest. Thank you for remembering that "If you see something, say something."
At last report, Firefighter Lopez is still recovering from his injuries and was listed as being in stable condition at a local hospital.
