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.
