LOS ANGELES -- (KTLA) -- A woman has been arrested in connection with a hit-and-run crash in Santa Ana last month that left a 26-year-old music instructor brain dead, authorities announced Sunday.
Tracy Clapp, 36, of Santa Ana, was taken into custody Saturday evening after being spotted in the city and leading officers on a pursuit, in a stolen vehicle and on foot, that culminated in a physical altercation, police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna said at a news conference. She was ultimately apprehended by a police K-9 unit, the corporal said.
In the early morning hours of April 20, Chris Chavez, a beloved figure at Saddleback High School, was struck by a car while crossing Bristol Street near Central Avenue. He was declared brain dead just over a week later.
