Authorities have arrested a suspect in a fatal hit-and-run crash in Hinckley last week.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says the 31-year-old suspect from Wyoming, Minn. was arrested on Wednesday.  The man is jailed in Pine County and faces possible charges of criminal vehicular homicide and hit-and-run.

The victim, 24-year-old Trevor Langlois, was an Army veteran and also from Wyoming.  He had pulled over on an I-35 entrance ramp after experiencing problems with his truck on June 17 and was hit by a pickup truck, which fled the scene.  Langlois died several days later.

Authorities say a tip from the public led to Wednesday's arrest.
