BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — A man is out on bond after allegedly fleeing the scene of a deadly hit-and-run over the weekend. 

Police say Jacob Knazs turned himself in on Thursday. He was booked into EBR Parish Prison on a charge of felony hit-and-run. The 22-year-old faces charges in the death of Breunkia Collins.

Collins, 32, died after getting hit by a car while crossing the street around 8:45 p.m. Sunday. The crash happened in the 5700 block of South Sherwood Forest Boulevard, according to police.

“They say he was speeding. Someone say they seen him swerving and speeding. And they say he came from behind the other car and came over. And it was her and two other people. I’m guessing she was the last one walking behind them. She wasn’t with them. She didn’t know them,” said LaTreisha Caines, a cousin of  Breunkia Collins. 

Family members reflected on the life of the Southern University graduate.

“He took her. He took her from us. We is broken… My cousin was full of life. She went to school. She graduated – she went back for her master’s. She was about to go back for law school,” said Caines.

Baton Rouge detectives say there were several individuals in a nearby parking lot who rendered aid to the victim and might have additional information on the suspect vehicle.
