PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Phoenix police have arrested the suspect in connection to a hit-and-run crash that left a skateboarder dead Saturday night.
The collision was reported near 19th and Dunlap avenues, according to the Phoenix Police Department.
Police said Matthew Carringer, 24, was riding a skateboard against traffic when he was struck by a vehicle. The vehicle did not stop and fled the location.
Carringer was transported to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
On Monday, police arrested 21-year-old Breyon Green in connection to the hit-and-run crash.
According to court paperwork obtained by Arizona's Family, Green told police he fled the scene of the crash because he was "scared."
A passenger in the vehicle yelled at Green to watch out for Carringer before the crash. The same pedestrian later said, "you just killed that guy."
Green drove to a park and ride and walked to a Circle K after the crash.
Green was booked into the Fourth Avenue Jail.
The crash is still under investigation.
