Police in San Antonio arrested an 18-year-old woman they say was a passenger in the hit-and-run death of a prominent Galveston doctor.
San Antonio and Galveston police arrested Cianna Mims Friday for failing to report a crime. KPRC, KSAT’s sister station in Houston, reports. Her boyfriend was said to be behind the wheel. He was arrested last week.
Mims was taken to the Galveston County Jail on Saturday and later released on bail. KHOU reported.
Police said Mims did not report that her silver 2015 Mercedes-Benz allegedly belonged to Dr. Nancy Hughes, 67, while Hughes was riding her bike in the Cherry Hill area of Seawall Boulevard on March 18.
Two people riding in the area spotted Hughes next to her bike around 6 a.m. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Mims’ parents told police that after the morning of March 18, the Mercedes-Benz had front-end damage including a cracked windshield and headlight lens, according to KPRC court documents. The car also had damage to the front driver’s side of the body.
Mims told her parents that her boyfriend, Logan Llewellyn, hit a deer in her sleep, the documents say. The vehicle had no blood or hair to suggest the car hit a deer, the mother told police.
However, it had traces of purple paint, the same color as Hughe’s bike, investigators said.
KPRC reported that police found the car at an RV park in Seguin, where Mim’s parents lived, but by then they had replaced the windshield. The vehicle was transported back to Galveston for examination.
Seguin police later arrested 21-year-old Llewellyn, from Conroe, and charged him with a fatal incident.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Galveston County Crime Stoppers anonymous hotline at 409-763-TIPS.
the Houston Chronicle reported that Hughes was a board-certified internal medicine physician who graduated from the University of Texas Medical Department at Galveston. her father, dr. Edward James Lefeber, also practiced in Galveston.
