An arrest has been made in connection with a fatal hit and run accident near Great Falls which killed a Swift Current man.
Jaroslav Kleberc was taken into custody in Texas and charged with negligent homicide, tampering with physical evidence, and failure to remain at the scene of an accident.
72 year old Marvin Knutson was killed April 17 near a weigh station on Interstate 15.
Court documents allege that after the crash, Kleberc stopped in Hardin, Montana, where farmers saw red transfer paint and damages on his trailer.
He told the farmers that he had hit a deer.
Kleberc remains in Texas at this time.
Knutson was on his way back to Swift Current after spending the winter in Arizona.
