One man is dead and three others are injured in two separate hit-and-run accidents.

Two women have been arrested in San Marcos in connection with the two accidents. Jennifer McKernan, 21, was charged with failure to stop and render aid after a fatal hit in run on Wonder World Drive early Monday morning. Tiffany Dahl, 25, is charged with three felony counts of failure to stop and render aid after an accident early Sunday morning.

San Marcos police say 37-year-old Ricardo Rodriguez was killed attempting to cross the overpass. Investigators linked debris from the scene to a vehicle believed to have been driven by McKernan. She was released under a $10,000 bond.

In a separate accident early Sunday morning, police said Dahl hit three people at Hopkins Drive and MLK Drive. Dahl is charged with three felony counts of failure to stop and render aid and is also facing two counts of intoxication assault.

Two men were taken to University Medical Center at Brackenridge with serious injuries. A woman was also injured and was treated for leg injuries.

Pedestrian safety tips:

• Cross only at intersections and crosswalks
• Cross only when pedestrian signal tells you to go
• Look in all directions before crossing
• If you had too much to drink, ask a sober friend to help you home
