(KAIR)--An arrest is made in connection with a Saturday evening incident that left an Atchison pedestrian seriously injured.

Arrested Sunday afternoon for failure to stop at an accident that resulted in great bodily harm was Nortonville resident, Orie Holt.

According to a release from Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, the 35-year-old Holt is the alleged driver of the westbound pickup truck, on U.S Highway 59, that struck 42-year-old Richard Burge, who was walking southbound across the highway, at 14th Street, around 6:40 Saturday evening.

Wilson said the truck failed to stop after Burge was struck, instead continuing to go west on the highway.

Burge was transported by ambulance to Amberwell Health in Atchison and was later flown to a Kansas City hospital with suspected serious injuries.

Wilson told MSC News Sunday that police located, and impounded, the truck believed to have been involved in the incident, with the investigation continuing.

Following his arrest, Holt was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
