A 31-year-old man has been arrested in the June 17 hit-and-run crash in Hinckley that killed 24-year-old Army veteran of Trevor Langlois.

The Bloomington Police Department received a tip Monday night and forwarded it to the State Patrol, which led to the arrest, the Star Tribune reported.

Investigators had sought help from the public and released the description of a vehicle wanted in connection with the case, a Ford F-150 XLT four-door pickup truck. A vehicle matching that description, registered to the suspect, has been impounded as evidence, KARE 11 reported.

Langlois was struck by a pickup after he had pulled over on an I-35 entrance ramp after he had trouble with his truck.

Langlois' family had collected money for a reward fund in the case. He was the father of a 2-year-old.

"He doesn't really understand," his wife told FOX 9 earlier this week. "Thinks daddy is either sleeping or sick. He just points at things and says ‘Dada's.'"

The suspect was taken into custody by the Minnesota State Patrol without incident at his parents' residence in Wyoming Wednesday morning, KARE reported. He was being held at the Pine County Sherriff's Office on suspicion of criminal vehicular homicide, KARE 11 reported.
