    An insurance claim helped police find a driver accused over the May 19 hit-and-run death of a Marine on layover at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

    Irving police say 44-year-old Richard Dean of Hurst faces a third-degree felony charge of failure to stop and render aid to 23-year-old Lance Cpl. Evan Sanchey of Yakima, Wash. The Marine was struck while trying to cross state Highway 183.

    Witnesses say Sanchey was hit by a light-colored Mazda Tribute, which lost some parts during impact.

    Police searched an insurance database for Tarrant County and located the claim.

    Dean on Saturday surrendered. He is free on $30,000 bond.

    Investigators on Tuesday did not immediately provide information for an attorney for Dean, whose telephone number was not publicly listed.
