A Pennsylvania man is in custody Thursday morning, charged in a hit-and-run crash in New Jersey that killed a woman who was helping an injured dog.

Brian McCauslin was arrested outside Harrisburg.

Police say he was driving the truck that hit and killed 23-year-old Tiffany Jantelle in Franklin Township Saturday.

She was in the street comforting a dog her boyfriend had accidentally ran over.

Flowers and a stuffed puppy mark the crash scene Monday.

At Jantelle's mother's home in Piscataway, Tiffany's equestrian trophies and ribbons lined the walls. She loved animals and died trying to save one.
