A Nampa man was killed and two children injured in a pedestrian hit-and-run on the 2400 block of Hillcrest Way on Saturday morning, according to a Nampa Police Department press release.

According to NPD, dispatch received a suspicious phone call reporting the hit-and-run at about 7:30 a.m. The call was later traced to Tristian Donovan Myers, 20, of Nampa, who police say admitted to hitting 43-year-old Leslie Nassar, a Nampa resident who is an Australian citizen, and fleeing the scene.

Myers was charged with leaving the scene of an injury crash, which is a felony. He is currently being held in Canyon County Jail pending an investigation. Authorities suspect alcohol was a factor in the case.

In addition to the fatality, police said Nassar’s two daughters, ages 3 and 8, were injured in the crash. They were treated at a hospital and released.
