DOVER (FOX 13) -

Deputies in Hillsborough County say they've arrested a suspect in the hit-and-run crash that left an elderly man dead.

It was around 2:30 p.m. Monday when Santiago Sanchez-Lopez was struck and killed while walking across Sydney Dover Road in Dover. Deputies issued a very specific description of the vehicle -- an older model For Ranger pickup truck -- and it apparently paid off.

Ryan Scott Pottinger was arrested at his Keysville home this afternoon. Deputies said they had received numerous tips identifying the vehicle and its owner.

Pottinger, 30, faces charges of leaving the scene of a fatal crash and driving with a suspended license. He has several previous arrests in Hillsborough County for vehicle and burglary charges.
