BESOCO, W.Va. (AP) - A Raleigh County man has been accused of intentionally striking and killing another man with his vehicle in a Besoco hit-and-run.

Multiple media outlets report 28-year-old Willis Wilson of Princewick was arrested Monday by deputies from the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force.

The sheriff’s office says in a statement that police believe Wilson and the victim, Tommy Lambert, were involved in a physical altercation Saturday night.

Multiple witnesses have told police they saw Wilson intentionally swerve and hit Lambert with his black pickup truck on Coal City Road in Besoco, before fleeing.

Wilson was held in Southern Regional Jail without bail on Monday night.

A Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office employee would not give any information on the specific charges Wilson will face.
