(SCOTT CO.) - A Scottsburg man was arrested Sunday on a warrant after he fled the scene of a fatal accident on January 2.

On Sunday evening, Indiana State troopers arrested 23-year-old Lucas Petty on charges of leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death, operating a vehicle while intoxicated resulting in serious bodily injury, causing death while operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and causing death when operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated with a Schedule I or II controlled substance with the defendant being at least 21 years of age.

The fatal accident happened on January 2 after 50-year-old Fred Moss of Louisville Ky. was struck and killed by a vehicle driven by Petty.

Moss who is a frequent visitor to the Scottsburg area, was walking east across U.S. 31 in Scottsburg at Cherry Street. As he was walking in the south bound lane, a 1999 maroon Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, driven by Petty, struck him in the roadway. After Fred Moss was struck, he was knocked into the north bound lanes, still in the roadway, where another vehicle, a white 2004 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, driven by 37-year-old Travis Riley of Seymour, struck him again.

Moss was pronounced deceased at the scene.
