DUI COUNT FOR DRIVER WHO RETURNED TO SITE

Months of investigative work has led to the arrest of a hit-and-run suspect in a pedestrian's death in Nassau County.

Barbara Lynne McDowell, 34, of Yulee, was charged Wednesday with DUI manslaughter and leaving the scene of a traffic crash involving death, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Austin Jerome Scealf, 28, of Yulee, was walking along Pages Dairy Road in the early morning of April 30, 2013, when he was hit by a Kia Soul. The driver left the scene but then later drove back through the area during the crash investigation. Authorities were able to detain the vehicle at that time, the Highway Patrol said.

The FHP has since completed its investigation and had McDowell booked into the Nassau jail. Court records show she also was charged in 2014 with driving with a suspended license.
