A Hillsboro man was arrested Friday for his role in a traffic accident that took place in December.

According to Hillsboro Police Chief Randy Leetham, authorities responded to an accident that occurred at 1:24 a.m. on Dec. 23 on Shelbyville Road near Long Avenue. A vehicle had reportedly collided with a concrete based light pole at a high rate of speed near the Montgomery County Housing.
