Michael Mesecke, 25, was arrested Thursday night and taken to Butler County Jail. He is being charged with accident involving death or injury, failure to give information or render aid, and reckless driving.
Police responded around 7:20 p.m. to the accident of Lincolnshire Drive and Haine School Road, where a 19-year-old woman was struck from behind by a car. Police said she was jogging on the side of the road when she was hit.
Mesecke said he had been drinking that night, but he could not be charged with DUI because too much time had passed between the accident and when he was arrested.
The victim, a Cranberry resident, was taken by ambulance to Allegheny General Hospital for treatment and was released.
