KANEOHE, Hawaii (AP) -- A man has turned himself in to Honolulu police in connection with a hit-and-run crash that killed a 19-year-old college student from Wisconsin.

The 29-year-old was booked Tuesday for negligent homicide and failure to render aid. He was released pending an investigation.

Police say Mariah Danforth-Moore of Oneida, Wis. was crossing Kamehameha Highway near Hawaii Pacific University's Windward Oahu campus Sunday night when she was struck by a car that fled the scene.

Her father tells KHON (http://bit.ly/s0D7IH) he moved to Waikiki to be close to her. Stephen Danforth says he hopes something will be done to make the area safer for pedestrians.

He says his daughter was coming home from her third day of work at the Victoria's Secret store at Ala Moana Center.
