Bauders was arrested by a task force on Jan. 3 after the owner of the tag on the vehicle was tracked down by investigators. The woman said her son told her she needed to report her vehicle as stolen, because it "was used in something," police said.

According to the report, the woman called her son's acquaintances, who "all stated Bill Bauders had admitted to causing the collision but would not turn himself in."

Police said Bauders stated during questioning that "he did not know he killed a lady and fled because he believed he was being followed."

He is being held at the Tulsa County jail in lieu of $519,100 bond.

Court records show that Bauders has a separate case pending for distribution of a controlled substance.
