1 Dead, 1 Hurt, 2 Jailed After Fatal Hit-And-Run in Oxford, Mississippi After Auburn Game
Two men have been arrested after a deadly hit-and-run in Oxford, Mississippi early Sunday morning in the aftermath of the Auburn - Ole Miss football game there Saturday.
Police say the victim Walker Fielder, a 21-year-old Ole Miss student from Madison, Mississippi, and a female student were struck by a truck in the parking lot behind Oxford City Hall around 1:15 a.m. Sunday.
Fielder later succumbed to his injuries and died, sparking a manhunt for the driver responsible for hitting him, who reportedly fled the scene in a Toyota Tundra.
Police identified two suspects, Seth Rokitka and Tristan Holland, and both had been arrested by Monday morning.
Holland was taken into custody late Sunday night in Shelby County, Tennessee. Roktika was found in Marshall County, Mississippi after his wrecked truck was discovered there Monday morning.
Holland has been charged with accessory after the fact, and law enforcement has not yet said what charges Roktika will face.
