State Police have made an arrest in a fatal hit-and-run crash in May.

Troopers secured an arrest warrant for 37-year-old Vincent Young of Natalbany. The crash took place on LA 3234 and claimed the life of 26-year-old Erin Gerhard of Independence, who was riding a skateboard in the right westbound lane when he was struck.

Based on forensic evidence, witness statements and assistance from the public, investigators booked Young for felony hit and run, driving under suspension and driving without a license plate.

Young was booked into the Amite Jail on Wednesday. The investigation is ongoing and troopers are still seeking information about a light-colored truck that may have been involved in the crash.
