An arrest was made on Tuesday in a

that occurred on Feb. 8.

Vicente Olague, 23, was arrested after a Dodge Caliber was located near 36th and L, leading to an investigation.

Olague was arrested for leaving the scene of an injury accident which results in death, driving during suspension and two outstanding misdemeanor warrants for previous traffic offenses.

Eli Keenan of Omaha was hit by the Dodge Caliber in early February and succumbed to his injuries on Feb. 20.

"They hit him so hard the police report said they couldn't tell if he was crossing at an intersection or not 'cause he's flown that far," Charles Keenan, the victim's father said. "It was horrific. Everything bad you can imagine. He was broken and they were fixing his face. I went to see him and I said, "Eli, you're ok and it's going to get better.'"

Bond has not been set for Olague at this time.
