MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A plea deal is apparently in the works for a Milwaukee man accused of killing a newly-engaged woman in a hit and run traffic crash. 

48-year-old Edwood Hastings is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon. 

Online court records say there's a projected guilty plea coming down. Hastings is currently charged with a felony count of fatal hit and run. 

32-year-old Andrea Barringer was struck and killed August 11th while she and two friends had just left a restaurant, and were crossing a busy Farwell Avenue on Milwaukee's east side. 

Hastings said the women were darting in front of cars, and he hit the brakes to avoid hitting Barringer but it was too late. 

Investigators said the victim was in a legal crosswalk. Hastings told officers he didn't stop because he wanted to talk to his family before he turned himself in to the police.
