Man arrested for deadly hit-and-run on Mockingbird Lane

Police have made an arrest in the fatal hit-and-run death of a college student.

Jonathan Redmond surrendered to police Monday night. He admitted he was driving the black Dodge Challenger that hit 21-year-old Paul Miltenberger.

An arrest warrant affidavit states Redmond's car had damage consistent with striking a pedestrian and it was missing a right side mirror like the one found at the crime scene.

Miltenberger died Sunday morning as he tried to cross Mockingbird Lane in northeast Dallas.

Police said Redmond told officers he did not stop to help Miltenberger, who died at the scene. Miltenberger was walking with two other friends.

There has been talk of building a pedestrian bridge over that busy intersection near McMillan Avenue for the past five years.

"It's already lined up to have more pedestrian traffic than your average intersection, yet it's a very high speed thoroughfare. People go very fast. It's a 35 mph speed limit, but people go 50 all the time," said Dallas Councilman Phillip Kingston.

Miltenberger was a Southlake Carroll graduate and a University of Missouri student. His family has planned a funeral for Saturday.

Redmond posted bond shortly after surrendering. He is already out of jail.
