MESA, Ariz. — Authorities say a suspect is in custody in connection with a
fatal hit-and-run accident in Mesa last week.
Mesa police said 36-year-old Matthew S. McIver was booked into jail Tuesday on
suspicion of manslaughter and leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
They say McIver’s car has been impounded as part of the investigation of last
Tuesday night’s accident that killed 68-year-old Richard Welck.
Police were looking for a white SUV with front-end damage and say a tip from a
citizen helped lead to the arrest.
Authorities didn’t immediately know if McIver has an attorney yet.
