LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- One person is dead after a hit-and-run on Preston Highway in Bullitt County Saturday night. 

Officials tell WDRB officers responded at 7:08 p.m. to a report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle at the intersection of Market Place Drive and Preston Highway in Hillview. 

Once officers arrived on the scene, the driver had fled. 

19-year-old Robert Pace was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The suspect's vehicle was located a few miles away, but he had fled. 

On Sunday, the Hillview Police Department arrested the suspect.

38-year-old Bradley Troy Cannon of Louisville turned himself into police.

According to a post on HPD's Facebook page, Cannon met officers in Shepherdsville where he was arrested without incident.

He was interviewed by investigators and is being held in the Bullitt County Detention Center charged with murder, tampering with physical evidence, wanton endangerment, failure to render aid and leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. 

Cannon also had a warrant out for his arrest on drug charges. 

We will provide updates as soon as they become available.
