Police said Geurino was driving westbound on Centennial Parkway approaching the intersection with Shaumber Road when she failed to stop at a posted stop side and struck the left side of the other vehicle that was driving through the intersection.

Police said that several people, including two children, in the vehicle Geurino allegedly hit sustained substantial injuries. A 37-year-old male passenger in the vehicle was pronounced deceased at the scene, and one juvenile remains in critical condition.

After the crash, police said, Geurino fled the scene on foot, and was later located at her nearby residence and taken into custody. Impairment was suspected to be a factor.
