EDMONTON - Charges have been laid in the death of a Good Samaritan killed by a hit-and-run driver last summer.

Andrew Green, 46, had recently moved to Edmonton from Toronto when he saw a stranded motorist on the Anthony Henday freeway.

He pulled over, and while trying to help, was struck by a passing car.

Scott Pattison, with Edmonton Police Service, says it took several months, but they found a suspect.

He says police were helped by a tip to Crime Stoppers after they put out a call on several occasions for witnesses to step forward.

Kieran Porter, 35, of Edmonton has been charged with hit and run, careless driving and fleeing the scene of a crash resulting in death.

Porter is expected in court on Jan. 16.
