Fresno Police say a police department employee spotted the van on Friday morning and called police. The driver, 51-year-old Luis Garcia, was arrested later at Manchester Center in Central Fresno.
The van Garcia was driving had damage to the front end -- consistent with what investigators say would have been the result of yesterday's hit and run.
Detectives say the man hit and killed 80-year-old Amelia Whisnand while she was crossing the street in a wheelchair on Thursday near Fulton Street and Stanislaus Street. A traffic camera in the area captured the van just before it hit the woman that helped lead to the suspect's arrest.
