Fifty-year-old Timothy Polijczuk of Mount Ephraim was arrested Monday. He's charged with leaving the scene of a fatal accident, causing death while driving with a suspended license and numerous motor vehicle violations.

Authorities say 67-year-old Joyce Putmon of Blackwood was hit as she crossed the Black Horse Pike around 7 p.m. Sunday.

The Camden County Prosecutor's Office says Polijczuk was tracked down with the help of a tip from someone who saw a news report about the search for the pickup.

He's being held on bail of $192,500. It was not clear Monday if he has a lawyer.
