A Ventura County woman has been arrested for the April hit and run death of a San Fernando Valley high school student.

German Alex Romero was killed April 20th, as he was riding his bike on DeSoto Avenue, in Chatsworth.  The 17-year-old boy was a star soccer player, and popular student at Chatsworth High School.

Los Angeles Police Detectives say they arrested 23 year old Dominique Rush of  Oxnard on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter, and felony hit and run.  They also arrested her father, Steven Rush, because they say he tried to conceal the accident.

Detectives say that leads from citizens helped lead to the arrest.
