A Virginia Beach man has been arrested and charged with driving under the influence and felony hit and run after a fatal accident with a pedestrian in Virginia Beach.

According to police, 57-year-old Virginia Beach resident David Paul Lucas was crossing Virginia Beach Blvd. on April 23, when he was struck by a Nissan Xterra driven by 25-year-old Virginia Beach resident Brandon W. Meck.

A patrolling K-9 officer witnessed the collision while stopped at a traffic light.
