Picayune Police Department reports state that they have arrested an individual for the hit and run accident that occurred last week on Highway 43 at Boley Creek bridge.
Through investigation of video surveillance from numerous businesses along Highway 43 in both directions from the Boley Creek bridge, investigators were able to identify a dark colored side by side UTV that was in the area during the time of the accident.

Through further investigation of the area around the Boley Creek area where the accident occurred, investigators were riding near Inside Road on Tuesday when they observed a UTV that matched the description of the vehicle observed in the video surveillance.
