Man charged in fatal hit and run pleads not guilty Friday

RAPID CITY, S.D. – A Rapid City man accused of a fatal hit and run in December entered a plea of not guilty during a court appearance Friday.

25-year old Zachary Fegueroa pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular homicide in the death of Joseph Martinez, along with hit and run with injury and driving under the influence.

Fegueroa is accused of hitting and killing the pedestrian in the area of East Boulevard North and East North Street back on December 6th.

Police say Fegueroa left the scene and was arrested a short time later on Spruce Street.

Prosecutors say he’s a habitual offender after a previous ingestion of a controlled substance conviction.

If they can prove that and Fegueroa is convicted of all charges, he faces up to 31 years in prison.

He’s due back in court next month.
