INDIANAPOLIS -- A 20-year-old Indianapolis man will serve four years in prison for his role in a fatal hit-and-run that killed a woman in April.

Tresor Shema, 20, pleaded guilty Tuesday to failure to remain at the scene of an accident and obstruction of justice in connection with the April 23 crash.

Police said Shema was driving a Volkswagen Passat when he crashed into a Dodge Neon at the intersection of 34th Street and Moller Road.

The force of the crash caused the Neon to split in half, injuring the car’s driver and killing a 22-year-old woman who was a passenger.

Shema allegedly kept on driving after the crash, eventually colliding with a fence and then fleeing the vehicle on foot. He was apprehended a short time later.

He was sentenced to four years in prison and one year of home detention following his release.
