Leonard Decouto, 51, was arrested on Monday after he allegedly struck 79 year-old Tran Hong with his U-Haul truck at the entrance to the Millridge subdivision off Johnson Road in Lawrenceville.

Hong was on the side of the road when the U-Haul truck being driven by DeCouto left the roadway, fatally struck her and then continued on without stopping. Ms. Hong was killed on impact.

Decouto is charged with first degree vehicular homicide, felony hit and run, and failure to maintain a lane.
