Police say an arrest has been made in connection with the death of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle as he was leaving a country music concert in northeastern Pennsylvania.

Authorities in Lackawanna County said the man was hit shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday after a Jason Aldean concert at Montage Mountain.

Police in Scranton told The (Scranton) Times-Tribune that a 23-year-old Union Dale woman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Capt. Glenn Thomas said charges are pending the results of a blood test.

Coroner Tim Rowland said 33-year-old Michael Sanders of Dunmore died at Geisinger Community Medical Center about 40 minutes after he was struck.

The scene was blocked off, creating a massive traffic jam and preventing people from leaving the concert for hours.
