    A young woman was struck and killed while walking at Route 1 near the University of Maryland campus early Sunday morning.

    Oni died at the scene.

    The driver fled, but officers found the minivan a short time later and arrested Jacky Luangraj, 33, from Manassas, Virginia.

    Police said at the time of his arrest, Luangraj's blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

    He faces 13 charges including negligent auto homicide - under the influence, driving under the influence, and reckless endangerment. It is not known when he will answer those charges or if he currently has a lawyer.
