COOS BAY, Ore. (AP) - A homeless man has been arrested in the hit-and-run death of a Coos Bay man killed while walking across a road to get his mail.

Coos County District Attorney Paul Frasier says the minivan believed to have struck the victim was discovered Tuesday evening, about a mile from the scene of the afternoon collision.

It was at the home of auto-repair person who said a man named Todd asked for front-end damage to be repaired. Other witnesses identified the driver as 52-year-old Edward Todd Tandy Hume.

The transient later went to the police station, where he was arrested on outstanding warrants for methamphetamine possession and failure to appear.

Frasier says Hume now faces a charge of felony hit and run.

The victim’s name was not immediately released.
