WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a New Jersey man they say struck and killed a teenager crossing a roadway after leaving a carnival in April.

Gloucester County prosecutors said Friday that Sterling Knight, of Stratford, will be charged with vehicular homicide and leaving the scene of a fatal motor vehicle accident.

Prosecutors say he returned a few minutes after leaving the scene of the crash that killed 15-year-old Gavyn Connolly.

Knight was in Salem County Jail on $50,000 bail Friday. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney to comment on his behalf.

Authorities say Connolly was crossing Route 42 in Washington Township with two other friends after leaving the carnival. The other two girls were not hit.
