According to police, Vicars-Goings was hit several times by one of the people inside the vehicle. He dropped to the side of the truck and was run over.

Police have already arrested three other suspects in this case.

Hallett-Miles initially provided a false name to Florida police but eventually disclosed his real identity and was arrested on the warrant.

Terre Haute police were notified of his arrest Friday. They did receive information he had fled to Florida early in the investigation.

He is currently being held in the Putnam County jail without bond awaiting extradition to Indiana.
