GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. — In late August, Munsha Shekhani was rear-ended while sitting at a red light outside of Duluth. Authorities said she chased after the SUV that hit her and ended up being hit by a box truck. That second crash killed her.
Just weeks later, police now say the man behind the wheel of the SUV she chased has been taken into custody. Police say a tip provided through Crime Stoppers led to the arrest of 24-year-old Jose Anjel Medina of Lawrenceville.
Following the tip, police were able to find Medina and arrest him in connection with that collision. He faces charges of hit-and-run, following too closely and violation of a driving permit. Police said he won't face charges in connection with the fatal collision that followed.
The original crash happened on Aug. 27 on Steve Reynolds Boulevard near I-85. Authorities said the victim ended up pulling out in front of a box truck as she pursued Medina. Shekhani was seriously injured and ultimately died from her injuries. Police said that Medina never returned to the scene or called the police.
As a result of the crash, police issued an alert to the public hoping someone would contact CrimeStoppers with information. Police said that tip came in on Sept. 6 and allowed them to make the arrest.
