PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Phoenix police have arrested a man in connection to a deadly hit-and-run crash near 19th and Dunlap avenues on Saturday.

The brother of the victim spoke out to Arizona's Family before an arrest was made. 

"He was a good guy, he had a big heart, loved life, his family, his friends, his dog," the victim's brother, Mike Carringer, said.

Police say 24-year-old Matthew Carringer was riding his skateboard against traffic when a car hit him head on. 

The vehicle never stopped but other drivers who saw what happened were able to give eyewitness reports to police. 

"It disgusts me, personally, going through this. I don't know how you can just go and see somebody come against your windshield and then drive away like nothing happened. I don't know how you can personally live with that. Frankly, it just really disgusts me," Mike said through tears. 

On Monday, Phoenix police arrested 21-year-old Breyon Green for leaving the scene of the crash. 

Green was booked into the Fourth Avenue jail.

While the driver is in the wrong for leaving the scene, the skateboarder was riding his skateboard against traffic. Had the driver of the car been properly documented and not DUI there would have been no charges.


Properly documented?? What, like slave papers from his ancestors?


[thumbdown] Can we predict with a high probability that the driver was an illegal alien, who had no drivers license and/or insurance? This is their normal M.O.!


Um, I think you overdosed on your daily regimen of stupid pills.


Well Breyon Green wasn't a illegal. He was a piece of dirt that hit a man and left him on the road to die.
