LUFKIN (KYTX) - An arrest has been made in a hit and run crash that left a Lufkin Bicyclist dead.

Lufkin police have arrested 21-year-old Jennifer Isabel Mireles in connection with the death of 21-year-old Alexander Jensen.

Jensen died at the scene of the crash, and Mireles apparently fled the area before contacting police a day later.

During the police interview, Mireles confessed to being the driver of the 2002 Mazda Protégé that struck Jensen.

She stated that she took her attention away from the roadway to look for her wallet and looked back to the roadway as she struck Mr. Alexander's bicycle. Ms. Mireles stated that she was scared and fled the area, driving to her home on Lee Avenue in Lufkin.


Following Ms. Mireles' confession, Lufkin PD officers continued their investigation and verified Ms. Mireles' account of the incident.

Finding probable cause to believe that Jennifer Isabel Mireles was the driver of the vehicle involved in the crash that resulted in Alexander Jensen's death, Corporal Brad Davis sought, and a judge issued, a warrant for Ms. Mireles' arrest.


At approximately 1:45 PM Tuesday, Jennifer Isabel Mireles surrendered to Corporal Davis at the Angelina County Jail.
