A 26-year-old Loxahatchee woman was arrested Friday on charges related to a Feb. 13 crash that killed a 47-year-old school teacher, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
Megan Mathis was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail and charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving death, the sheriff’s office said. Deputies allege Mathis was driving in the 4100 block of Calamondin Boulevard when she hit Paula Vinksy, also of Loxahatchee, from behind with her 2004 Jeep Liberty.
She turned herself in Friday as part of agreement with the Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office, her attorney Scott Suskauer said. She is scheduled to make her first appearance in court before a judge Saturday morning.
Mathis came forward days after the crash and authorities examined her vehicle.
