A Tennessee woman accused of killing a police officer in a hit-and-run crash turned herself in just hours after she was placed on the FBI’s Top Ten Most Wanted list.
Janet Elaine Hinds surrendered to Chattanooga police early Monday.
She was accused of vehicular homicide in the death of Chattanooga police officer Nicholas Galinger, 38, who was struck Saturday night while on a call with his field training officer.
Police recovered a Honda CR-V with front-end damage on Sunday from Hinds’ residence, 5 miles from where Galinger was struck.
Hinds is a postmaster at a local U.S. Post Service office, according to U.S. Post Office Corporate Communications.
