A trucker suspected in the hit-and-run death of a man on Interstate 90 in south-central Montana has been arrested.
Tonrud says the Montana Highway Patrol will transport Welk back to Montana.
Prosecutors believe Welk was driving a semi-trailer on Interstate 90 near Big Timber early on Sept. 30 when the truck hit and killed 81-year-old Elgie Bedford of Wasilla, Alaska. Welk became a suspect after his driving partner called the Montana Highway Patrol.
