Man arrested in deadly hit-and-run incident in Norfolk

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- A man is facing charges in connection with a fatal hit-and-run incident. 

Emergency crews found 54-year-old Erica Zankli in the street in the 1400 block of East Ocean View Ave. on July 21 around 10:30 p.m. Zankli died there.

Her son, Takoda Carter, fought through tears as he spoke with 13News Now.

"How can you just leave somebody in the road like that?” Carter asked.

Police arrested Phillip J. Harrison, 37, and charged him with Driving Under the Influence, and Felony Hit and Run. 

Police encourage anyone with additional information about what happened to contact Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-UP.

When detectives finish their investigation, they will turn their findings over to the Office of the Norfolk Commonwealth’s Attorney for review and determination of further charges.
