Lancaster police Monday made an arrest in a fatal hit-and-run accident from Wednesday.

Sebastien Y. Lavertu, 32, of Danville, Quebec, has been charged with leaving the scene of an incident resulting in death, according to the Erie County District Attorney's Office.

Police allege that at about 11:50 p.m. on June 21, Lavertu was behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer that fatally struck 28-year-old Ryan Johns of Depew at 6108 Broadway and Pavement Road in the Town of Lancaster and drove away.

Lancaster Police used video from several sources to identify the truck in the crash.

Lavertu was taken into custody when his damaged truck was spotted crossing from the Quebec border into New York State at Lake Champlain.
