GASTON, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina troopers say they have arrested a man who struck and killed a truck driver from Georgia last month, then drove away.

The Highway Patrol told media outlets that Ricco Williams of Columbia was charged Tuesday night with hit-and-run resulting in death and driving without a license.

Troopers say 55-year-old Loubert Laube from Lawrenceville, Georgia, was standing outside his truck parking on a frontage road near Interstate 26 in Calhoun County when he was struck and killed on May 24.

Williams is being held in jail awaiting a bond hearing. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.
