CHAUVIN, La. (AP) - State police say they’ve made an arrest in a deadly hit-and-run accident that happened in Chauvin (SHOH’-van).

The pedestrian killed in the early morning accident was identified as 39-year-old Taylor Thibodeaux (TIH’-bih-doh) of Chauvin. He was struck by a car shortly before 12:30 a.m.

He was hit as he walked on the shoulder of Louisiana Highway 56.

A suspect called state police later Tuesday.

Troopers later arrested 47-year-old Christopher Little of Chauvin on a charge of felony hit and run driving. State police said in a news release that Little was jailed in Terrebonne Parish. Online records were not yet available and it was unclear if he had an attorney.
