NT Police have arrested a man in relation to the fatal hit-and-run in Timber Creek last month that killed a 19-year-old man on an empty stretch of highway.

The 50-year-old male was arrested by Major Crash detectives in Alice Springs today, following assistance from the public.

Police also executed “a number” of warrants in connection to the man and they expect to charge him with hit-and-run causing death later this evening.

“The man is currently being interviewed,” a police statement said.

Police had released CCTV footage of the suspected vehicle in April, hoping the public would recognise it.

Detective Senior Sergeant Jeshua Kelly thanked the public for their assistance identifying the vehicle, “which led to the driver also being identified”, he said.
