Calif. Man Accused Of Hitting Pedestrian, Dumping Remains

Police in California said Saturday that they have arrested a driver who struck and killed a woman walking along a freeway, then fled the scene after half the victim's body smashed through his windshield.

Officers said he dumped the remains in a commercial trash bin.

Lawrence Chico, 20, of Rialto, Calif., was booked for investigation of vehicular manslaughter and hit-and-run driving. He's being held on more than $60,000 bail and is due in court Monday.

Police said the woman was walking along the center divider of the San Bernardino Freeway about 65 miles east of Los Angeles shortly after midnight. It was not immediately clear why she was there.

Police said the impact of the crash severed the woman's body and that a portion smashed through the driver's windshield. Chico was arrested by police who saw the damage to his car.
