(CBS) The 22-year-old suspect in a fatal hit-and-run accident is the daughter of a veteran Los Angeles police officer, CBS LA reports.
Police allege Vanessa Marie Yanez, 22, was behind the wheel June 26 when her car struck bicyclist Jesse Dotson on a Los Angeles street.
The driver fled, according to the report. Dotson, who suffered serious head injuries, was transferred to a hospital where he died June 29.
Police reportedly found the suspect's car at a home less than a mile away from the accident scene. The car matched the description of a vehicle Yanez had reported missing, CBS LA reports.
Yanez is reportedly the daughter of Sgt. Arturo Yanez, a 30-year LAPD veteran.
Police say there's no reason to believe the elder Yanez was involved, but police said they will launch a separate investigation if the investigation uncovers he had knowledge of the accident.
