Police say 44-year-old Carlos Hernandez-Tecata, of Lilburn, struck a pedestrian on Sunday night in the 6100 block of South Norcross Tucker Road.

According to a preliminary investigation, a woman was trying to cross the roadway when she was struck by a dark colored pickup truck that drove off after striking her.

Police are withholding the name of the victim until her next of kin has been notified.

Hernandez-Tecata was arrested Tuesday and is facing charges that include driving without a license, felony hit-and-run and felony vehicular homicide.

Police did not say how they were able to locate Hernandez-Tecata.

It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.
