PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - A Mississippi man has been charged with felony DUI after a pedestrian was hit and killed.

Pascagoula police told news outlets that 44-year-old David Foster was arrested after the man was struck Friday night.

Police Capt. Doug Adams says 30-year-old Jonathan Born of Grand Bay, Alabama, was taken to a hospital but didn’t survive his injuries.

Adams says police draw blood in all fatal incidents in which a driver is involved. He didn’t share details with The Sun Herald on Foster’s arrest but said his blood alcohol level would have been checked, resulting in the DUI causing death charge.

Foster is held without bond in the Jackson County jail and also faces misdemeanor driving without proof of insurance. It is unclear if he has an attorney.
