    Edgar Alfonso Ugalde surrendered to Garland police Tuesday after being named as a suspect in the late-night collision, police said. He was held in the Garland Detention Center on a charge of failure to stop and render aid involving death.

    Joyce Cawis was found unconscious insider a Toyota 4Runner near the intersection of Jupiter Road and Forest Lane. Cawis, of Rowlett, was taken to a hospital where she later died, police said.

    Police on Sunday released video of the crash, which showed a black, 4-door pickup colliding with Cawis' 4Runner. Witnesses told police the driver of the Dodge Ram got out of the truck and into a black car shortly after the crash.

    Police later identified Ugalde as a suspect and offered a $5,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.

    No bond amount has been set as of this writing.
