WICHITA, Kan Wichita police have released the names of three people killed in a hit-and-run weekend crash.

The victims were identified Monday as 21-year-old Emily Phillips, of McPherson, and Jake Hallacy and Zachery Taylor, both 26 and from Valley Center.

All three were passengers in a car that police say was struck around 2 a.m. Sunday by a speeding SUV that ran a red light at a west Wichita intersection. The car's driver remained in a hospital Monday, and a fourth passenger was treated and released.

Police said the SUV's 31-year-old driver ran from the scene but was later arrested at a Wichita home. He was being held on suspicion of three counts of second-degree murder and other charges.

Authorities said there was no sign that the man had used his brakes.
