JASONVILLE, Ind. (WTHI) - An arrest has been made after a fatal hit in run in Greene County.

It happened on West Main Street on Monday night in Jasonville.

According to police, 66-year-old Billy Schubla of Linton hit a 54-year-old man and then fled the scene.

Police say the victim was airlifted to Regional Hospital in Terre Haute, where he died.

Witnesses helped police identify the truck.

Using evidence from the scene and video from local business cameras, police were able to narrow down the search to a 1982-1983 Ford F-150 XL truck.
