PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- A 27-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a deadly crash in Monroeville.

Thirty-two-year-old Thomas Risko died at a local hospital after he was hit by a driver at the intersection of Broadway Boulevard and Coffey Street in August.

According to police paperwork, Cody Riggins admitted to officers at the scene that he had been drinking and failed a field sobriety test.

Riggins is facing charges of homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, involuntary manslaughter, DUI and traffic violations.

He turned himself Thursday and will be in the Allegheny County Jail awaiting arraignment.
