NOW: 5-month search ends for woman accused of leaving scene of deadly crash

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The woman who police say left the scene of a deadly crash that killed a 6-year-old in August turned herself in Tuesday night. 

The 5-month search for 26-year-old Reka Phillips ended around 8 p.m. 

According to police, Phillips was driving a Chrysler 300 when she crashed into a Dodge Durango SUV at the intersection of Vassar and O’Brien on August 29th.

One of the occupants of the Dodge, 6-year-old Maliyah Davis, died due to her injuries.

Phillips did not cause the crash.

She is due back in court.
