TORONTO - A 47-year-old man surrendered several hours after a deadly early morning hit-and-run in Vaughan.

York Regional Police say witnesses called 911 just after 6:30 a.m. Thursday when they spotted a "black" car fleeing from the scene after running down a pedestrian on Dufferin St. just south of Rutherford Rd.

The victim, a 57-year-old woman, was dead by the time emergency crews arrived.

Investigators determined she was walking east across Dufferin St. at Apple Blossom Dr. when she was struck and killed by a southbound vehicle.

Gino De Luca, 47, is charged with failing to stop at the scene of an accident, failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing bodily harm and failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing death.

The Vaughan man was released from custody later in the day. He is scheduled to appear in Newmarket court on Jan. 10, 2013.
