New Hampshire State Police have announced an arrest in the hit and run that killed a retired police sergeant in Kingston on Tuesday.

A 45-year-old man from Derry was arrested at a hotel in Portsmouth on Friday morning, State Police Col. Nathan Noyes said at a press conference.

State police had identified the vehicle that allegedly killed retired officer Donna Briggs as she was cycling on Route 125 at around 11:37 a.m. the day before on Wednesday.

Police were looking for a large, dark-colored SUV believed to be a GMC Yukon that was spotted by a nearby business camera.

It appears that Briggs, 59, was hit from behind by the leaked SUV, police said.

Anyone with information regarding the incident has been directed to contact New Hampshire State Police Communications at 603-223-4381 or the MSU-TIP line at 603-628-8477.

Briggs retired from the department in 2013 after a 20-year career, the Hudson Police Chief said. She had trained for the Police Unity Tour, a ride that departed Oct. 10 from Florham Park, New Jersey, to Washington, DC, to educate officers who died in the line of duty. The money raised during the race will be used to support the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial and the National Law Enforcement Museum.

“It’s such a tragedy that she does something like this and ends up dying,” Hudson Police Chief Bill Avery said on Tuesday. “It doesn’t surprise me that she’s over there doing this stuff.”
