RUTLAND, Vt. (NEWS10) — On Wednesday, Vermont State Police arrested a man who they say is connected to a fatal hit-and-run from March 11. Police say Dylan Gunnip, 27, of Rutland was arrested on suspicion of leaving the scene of a crash that resulted in the death of Henry Miles, 54, also of Rutland.

Investigators say they determined that Gunnip was driving a 2019 Dodge Ram truck and struck Miles as he crossed Route 4 in Mendon—near the Killington Pico Motor Inn—at around 9:34 p.m. on March 11. Miles was seriously injured and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say they found the driver-side rear-view mirror that broke off during the crash at the scene, and that it came from Gunnip’s truck. Police also said Miles’ blood was on the mirror.

Gunnip was processed and released on a citation to appear for arraignment on Monday in the Criminal Division of Vermont Superior Court in Rutland. If you have information about this accident, contact Vermont State Police Trooper Zachariah Shaughnessy at (802) 773-9101.
