The man believed to be responsible for a deadly hit and run accident on Mobile Highway has turned himself in to authorities.
Charles F. Nobles, 34, surrendered at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office after the vehicle he was allegedly driving was located.
The blue Mustang involved in the crash was recognized by a man who saw the vehicle description in the news, and he called authorities. It was parked outside the WoodSpring Suites in the 2000 block of West Detroit Boulevard. Troopers responded to the scene and seized the vehicle, which FHP said had front end damage consistent with the fatal hit and pedestrian crash.
FHP said the 49-year old female pedestrian was struck by a vehicle sometime late Tuesday or early Wednesday on Mobile Highway near Houston Avenue., about one-third of a mile south of Saufley Field Road. The impact of the collision knocked her down into a deep ditch. Victim names are no longer released by FHP.
At the time of publication of this story, Nobles had not been booked into the Escambia County Jail and his mugshot was not yet available.
