PHOENIX — An arrest has been made in a street racing incident that resulted in the death of a 28-year-old woman on Sunday night, authorities said Tuesday.

Police booked 34-year-old Andrew Friedlander into jail on Monday evening for manslaughter after being released from the hospital.

Witnesses told police an Infiniti, allegedly driven by Friedlander, and a black Camaro were traveling side by side at a high rate of speed westbound on Indian School Road around 9:30 p.m. when the Infiniti struck the woman in a Jeep as she was making a left-hand turn from Indian School Road.

The woman, identified as Charissa Coleman, was taken to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Friedlander was also hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police are still looking for the driver of the Camaro who fled the scene after the collision, according to police.

Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 480-TESTIGO for Spanish.
