An arrest has been made in a fatal hit and run that took the life of an 18-year-old man in Merville.

RCMP Constable Rob Gardner says the incident happened at around 5:30 AM on Tuesday just north of the Merville store.

Gardner says Highway 19A was closed for almost 10 hours for an investigation. Gardner notes a ferry user reported seeing the suspect vehicle.

He says a 29-year-old driver was stopped and arrested for criminal negligence causing death and failing to remain at the scene of an accident.
