SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

Springfield police say they have arrested a "strong suspect" in connection with a deadly hit-and-run on Boston Road New Year's Day. 

Officers arrested Adam Thurber Friday morning at the Cumberland Farms on West Street in Ludlow on charges of an outstanding warrant from April 2013 for operating under the influence of liquor and a marked lanes violation.

Springfield police believe Thurber may have been behind the wheel of a Ford F-150 that hit and killed Derek Russell on New Year's Day on Boston Road.

That accident is still under investigation and Thurber will face charges on Monday.

He is being held on a high bail.
