A suspected hit-and-run driver has been arrested for allegedly killing a 40-year-old woman while the victim was walking in her hometown of Miller Place last year, Suffolk County police said.

Christopher Campbell, 35, of Sound Beach, was charged Tuesday with leaving the scene of an incident without reporting involving a fatality.

Vehicular Crimes Unit detectives said that the suspect was driving a box truck eastbound on North Country Road when he struck Tracy Mangino while she was walking along the road shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014.

The victim died at John T. Mather Hospital Memorial Hospital in Port Jefferson.

Campbell will be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Central Islip.
