Fresno police arrested the woman they say was driving in a Tower District hit-and-run over the weekend.
Jessica Acunia, 23, turned herself in, according to police spokesman Lt. Mark Hudson. She was booked into Fresno County Jail on charges of felony hit and run and failure to have a court-ordered ignition interlock device. Jail records show that she posted bail and was released early Tuesday morning.
Police are still seeking passengers who were in the car; they have not been identified, Hudson said.

Before she turned herself in, Hudson said police found the Chrysler 300 they believe was the hit-and-run car. Hudson said it was located Monday in the 1700 block of South Channing Avenue, south of Chandler airport in southwest Fresno.
Police say Acunia is believed to be the driver of the Chrysler that hit 36-year-old John Rodriquez early Sunday morning on Olive Avenue. Police say Rodriquez was the victim of an assault moments earlier that caused him to stumble into the roadway where he was hit by the Chrysler. Hudson said Rodriquez suffered a skull fracture, a fractured vertebra and other serious injuries.
Police are still looking for the suspect who allegedly assaulted Rodriquez moments before the hit-and-run.
