DENVER – The suspect in a deadly hit-and-run crash that killed a young Denver attorney turned himself in to police Thursday night.

Norlan Estrada-Reyes, 27, is now under investigation on crash involving death, careless driving resulting in death, driving without insurance and failing to report a crash charges.

Denver police sent out a Crime Stoppers notice Thursday afternoon that asked for the public’s help in finding Estrada-Reyes, who is accused of hitting Karina Pulec, 28, with his truck – killing her – and fleeing the scene in the early-morning hours of Oct. 30.

Pulec was a young lawyer at Hogan Lovells Law Firm and had been out with friends that night.

Estrada-Reyes allegedly ditched the white truck he was driving and took off. 

The truck was found near the intersection of 8th Avenue and Acoma Street.

Police say Estrada-Reyes turned himself in sometime Thursday night. His arrest warrant carries a no-bond hold.
