Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (AP) - A Honolulu driver suspected of striking and killing a college student in a crosswalk two years ago has been charged with fleeing the scene of a fatal accident.

The Honolulu Star Advertiser reports 31-year-old Dominic Franklyn was indicted Wednesday on the felony charge in the death of 19-year-old Mariah Danforth-Moore of Oneida, Wis.

His bail is set at $11,000.

Danforth-Moore was a student at Hawaii Pacific University.

Honolulu police say Danforth-Moore on Nov. 20, 2011, was in a crosswalk on Kamehameha (KAHM'-me-HAHM'-me-ha)' Highway when a car traveling toward Kaneohe (kahn-ee-OH'-hay) struck her.

She died at Castle Medical Center.

Franklyn turned himself in two days later. He was arrested but not immediately charged.
