A Petal man is in the Harrison County Jail charged with a weekend hit-and-run accident that killed a 19-year-old girl.

Anthony Gerald Randall, 25, was arrested in Jackson Monday on an unrelated charge and detectives from Gulfport questioned him after it was determined the SUV he was driving was similar to the hit-and-run vechile.

Theresa Posey was struck and killed by a vehicle early Sunday morning as she walked down I-10. The girl was walking to a gas station after her car broke down. Officials said Randall was a frequent visitor to the coast, and had a girlfriend down there.

He has been ordered held on $1 million bond for leaving the scene of a fatal accident.
