A tip from a resident has led to the arrest of a man allegedly involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident that occurred on Aug. 13 in Mesa.

According to a press release, the Mesa Police Department has arrested 36-year-old Matthew McIver on counts of manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal accident. McIver, who works near the area, Ray and Sossaman roads, where the accident occurred, allegedly struck and killed a man in his 60s and fled the scene.

The police sought help from the public to find the driver of the SUV linked to the accident, and a tip from a citizen about McIver, who drives a Saturn Vue that fit the description, led to his arrest and the ensuing charges.
