Man on trial for fatal 2015 hit and run

Posted: Updated:

35-year-old Anthony Fidel Acosta is on trial for failure to stop and render aid. 

He is accused of leaving the scene after hitting and killing 50-year-old Reynaldo Rincon in March 2015. Investigators found the victim near 32nd and Avenue G, just east of the interstate. 

Prosecutors put the bumper of Acosta's car on display for jurors. DNA evidence showed the blood found on the car matched the victim's. 

Medical Examiner, Dr. Sridhar Nataraja testified the victim died immediately upon impact due to blunt head and neck trauma. 

Closing arguments begin Thursday morning.
