SALT LAKE CITY — A woman accused in a fatal hit-and-run accident also faces jail time for other charges.

According to an arrest warrant obtained by FOX 13 News, Mika Lindquist, 31, failed to appear in court on drug possession charges and a charge for failure to register a vehicle.

The warrant was issued September 28, four days after the fatal accident that killed 56-year old Ronald Renfro in Midvale.

Police say Lindquist came forward as the driver of the car that hit Renfro, but she hasn’t been charged at this point in the fatal hit and run. A press release issued in September by police stated the woman had not been booked at that time for, “reasons we cannot discuss.”

There is also a forfeiture petition from the state regarding nearly $2,900 located in a rental car during a traffic stop made on Lindquist on September 3 by the Unified Police Department. Authorities believe that money was meant to used to either buy drugs or was profit from selling drugs.
