Police: Teen Confesses In Fatal Hit-And-Run

A 17-year old turned himself in to police Tuesday and confessed to being the driver in a hit-and-run that left one woman dead and another one injured, Fort Worth police said.

Police said the incident happened just after 3 a.m. Sunday in the 3500 block of Angle.

Sacorey Williams told police he was driving a Chevrolet Suburban that hit two women leaving CJ's Club in the 1200 block of Northwest 35th Street, investigators said.

Investigators said officers on the scene of the hit-and-run originally obtained conflicting statements from multiple witnesses, including Williams' mother.

Based on that information, police originally said a man hit two women after stealing an SUV that a Good Samaritan left running as she helped another woman whose car was stuck in the mud.

Investigators said so far, they have learned the following:

One of the victims died at Harris Hospital, investigators said. The other woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Williams has been charged with failure to stop and render aid in a fatal accident. 

"Williams was at CJ's club on the night in question asking for help because his mother's Ford Explorer was stuck in the mud.  His mother arrived in a Chevrolet Suburban in an attempt to use this SUV to push the Explorer out of the mud which proved unsuccessful.

While attempting to physically push the Explorer by hand, an altercation broke out in the parking lot involving Williams who claims he was being beaten by several men.  Williams jumped into his mother's Chevrolet Suburban that was left running and sped off, accidentally running over two pedestrians.  Williams continued driving without stopping."
