DELAWARE COUNTY, Pa. -

A man was arrested in connection to a deadly hit-and-run from July, police in Delaware County announced Monday.

According to the Springfield Township Police Department and District Attorney Jack Whelan, Pacurie Huynh was arrested after a months long investigation.

The victim in the hit-and-run, Thomas Quercetti, was laid to rest Monday after he was taken off life support last week. Quercetti was hit by a car on State Road in Springfield over the summer.

At the time, investigators say a broken piece of glass found at the scene of the accident was all they had to go on.

If convicted, Huynh could face seven years in prison.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
