BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Police in Bozeman have arrested a suspect in a weekend hit-and-run that seriously injured a 72-year-old man.

Police say 31-year-old Jerry Edwards Dickson was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of tampering with evidence and not reporting an accident involving an injury. He is scheduled to make an initial appearance in Justice Court on Wednesday.

Investigators say William Kasun was struck early Saturday while trying to cross the street in Bozeman and thrown about 110 feet. Kasun was spotted by passing motorists and taken to the hospital. He suffered a head injury, broken ribs and fractures to his face and neck. He was listed in serious condition at a Billings hospital on Tuesday.

Dickson’s roommate went to police Monday after hearing about the collision to report that Dickson had damaged her vehicle after borrowing it early Saturday.
