Lincoln police have identified the man killed Sunday night's hit and run accident.

It happened at around 9:30 p.m. just west of 14th and Cornhusker.  Police identified the man as 53-year-old Daniel Lee Kreis, a Lincoln transient. 

Lincoln police say 46–year–old Kelly Hall was heading east on Cornhusker when she struck Kreis while he was walking across the street.  Police say Hall stopped and checked on Kreis as witnesses performed CPR on him.  Officers say she then fled the scene, but called police twenty minutes later to report the accident.  Hall was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, and felony DUI.
