TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Tallahassee Police Department has made an arrest in connection to a deadly hit-and-run crash on North Monroe Street earlier this month.

Dacey Glenn Grice, 31, has been arrested for the fatal hit-and-run crash in the 2700 block of North Monroe Street the morning of Nov. 8.

TPD said their investigation revealed that just after 11 a.m. on Nov. 8, a Honda Accord driven by Grice veered off the roadway near Sharer Road and hit an unidentified pedestrian.

Grice then keep driving, going through the parking lots of two businesses before coming to a stop. Police said witnesses on scene told Grice about the person he hit with his car and he drove away.

The victim, an adult man, was transported to a local hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

After an investigation and consultation with the State Attorney’s Office, TPD said they developed probable cause to charge Grice. He was taken into custody on Tuesday by TPD with assistance from the United States Marshal Service and transported to the Leon County Detention Facility.

"Driving is a responsibility," police wrote in a release sent Wednesday. "If you are involved in a vehicle crash, Florida law requires that you immediately contact local law enforcement. If you witness a crash, please call TPD at 850-891-4200 to speak with an investigator. You can also remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 850-574-TIPS."

Grice has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident with death, vehicular homicide and driving while license suspended or revoked.
