KIRKWOOD, Mo. (KMOX) – A Saint Ann man is in police custody for a February 9th hit-and-run death of a Kirkwood man.

Kirkwood Police tell KMOX 43-year-old Omar Vazquez is charged with one count of leaving the scene of an accident—a Class “D” felony.

Officers say Vazquez was the man behind the wheel of the mini van that hit Joseph Auffenberg on North Kirkwood Road.

Police found the van parked at an Overland business on Thursday.

It still had front end damage, but the windshield had been replaced.

Vazquez’s bond was set at $10,000.
