WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Wichita police say they have arrested a man and two women in a hit-and-run accident that killed a man on a horse.

Police on Thursday arrested a 26-year-old man for leaving the scene of a fatal accident and felony obstruction of justice. Two women, ages 19 and 28, also were arrested on obstruction of justice charges.

Police say the man was driving and the 19-year-old woman was a passenger when the car hit a horse carrying 49-year-old Lloyd Ferguson and 6-year-old Eddie Caddell on July 5.

Ferguson died and the boy is recovering in a rehabilitation hospital in Lincoln, Neb. Ferguson's horse had to be euthanized.

Police say a tip to Crime Stoppers this week led them to the vehicle involved in the accident.
