On Thursday, 39-year-old Carlos V. Fimbres was arrested and booked for causing serious physical injury and death by use of a motor vehicle. Police say that he was driving on a suspended license and was held on a $100,000 bond.
One of the women that was hit by Fimbres, 68-year-old Sheila Skubby, died after being transported on Thursday to St. Joseph's Hospital in Phoenix. The other victim, 69-year-old Grace Bradley, was also taken to the hospital, but went from critical condition to stable.
Police say that Fimbres hit the women with his car while they were walking in a crosswalk on Rodeo Road. Fimbres had been operating his pickup truck when he struck both women. This is not his first criminal offense. In 2005, he was charged with extreme DUI and in 2008, he admitted that he allowed an unauthorized minor to drive a motor vehicle.
