A man was arrested in connection to a hit-and-run that resulted in the death of Brunswick teen Tashara Culbreath earlier this month.

The Georgia State Patrol and Glynn County Police Department said they arrested 51-year-old Jeffery Herrington from Michigan.

According to authorities, Culbreath was hit by a vehicle on U.S. 17 north of Brunswick on Sept. 16 and Herrington took off. She died at the scene.

Glynn County police offered a $2,500 reward for any information that led to an arrest.

Herrington was charged with one count of leaving the scene of an accident involving death, which is a felony.

Authorities are investigating.
