Arrest - Hit and Run - Alice Springs

Police

Northern Territory Police have arrested a 64-year-old man in relation to a fatal hit and run that occurred in Alice Springs earlier this week.

Detectives from Alice Springs Criminal Investigation Branch and Major Crash Investigation Unit travelled to a remote community last night, before the man handed himself in and was subsequently arrested.

He has since been charged with one count hit and run and will appear before court at a later date.

Police would like to thank the public who greatly assisted in supplying vital CCTV footage and information that led to the successful identification and arrest of the man.
