NEWTON, Iowa (AP) -- Police have arrested a man suspected of fatally injuring a Newton teenager in a traffic accident.
Daniel Edwards was arrested Tuesday. The Newton Police Department says the 41-year-old Edwards is charged with homicide by vehicle, driving while intoxicated, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The accident occurred at about 9 p.m. on April 21 in Newton. Police say 14-year-old Brendan O'Brien, 14, was on foot in a roadway when he was hit by a vehicle. He died in a Des Moines hospital on April 23.
It's unclear whether Edwards has an attorney. Jasper County Jail records said he remained in custody Wednesday.
