TUCSON, Ariz. — Police in Tucson have arrested a suspect allegedly involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident.

They say 33-year-old Ruben Aulbert Lemon was arrested Saturday night.

He’s being held on suspicion of one count of a hit-and-run involving a death with additional charges possibly added at a later date.

Police say Lemon allegedly ran his truck into a bus stop at a high rate of speed last Wednesday, killing one man and injuring a woman.

The man died of his injuries at a Tucson hospital.

Police have identified the victim as 67-year-old Leonard Green.

It was unclear Sunday if Lemon has a lawyer yet.
