A woman, 27, made her first court appearance Monday after being arrested Sunday night in connection with a fatal hit-and-run Sunday night.

A woman was killed when a car hit her at North 82nd Street and Wallingford Avenue North just before 7 p.m., according to Seattle police. The car left the scene, but a woman returned 43 minutes later and told officers she had been the driver, police said.

According to a probable cause statement outlining the police case against her, an officer smelled alcohol on her breath.

A judge Monday set bail for the woman — held on on investigation of vehicular homicide and hit and run — at $200,000.
