— An Oxford teen was killed early Sunday when he was struck by a pickup while getting out of a car, authorities said Monday.

Sevon Cameron, 15, was getting out of a car near the intersection of U.S. Highway 15 and Stovall Road at about 2 a.m. Sunday when he was hit and killed, according to the state Highway Patrol.

The driver of the pickup, Curtis T. Cash, 36, of Oxford, drove home and called 911 to report the incident, authorities said. He was arrested at his home and charged with driving while impaired and felony hit-and-run.

The incident remains under investigation.

Cash was convicted in 1999 of DWI, and DWI charges in 1996 and 2004 were dismissed, according to court records.
