POLSON — A man wanted in Yellowstone County for a fatal hit-and-run has been arrested in the Mission Valley.

Lake County Sheriff Don Bell said 27-year old, Dominick Buccelli, the subject of an arrest warrant in Yellowstone County, was arrested Friday morning.

Buccelli was seen by a Lake County sheriff’s deputy in a 2018 Dodge Ram in Polson and the truck was determined to be stolen out of Bighorn County.

When the deputy attempted to stop him, Buccelli attempted to flee, according to Bell.

Buccelli was pursued by the deputy and a Polson police officer at speeds up to 90 mph in the Back Road and North Reservoir Road areas.
