Police waiting for results on white Sunfire believed to have been involved in hit and run

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Youngstown police are waiting for results of tests to confirm a white Pontiac Sunfire they seized at Brandy Wine Apartments is the one that hit two cars and five people on Friday.

That hit and run assault took place on Hylda about two minutes before a vigil for Robert Brown, Jr. who was killed by a hit and run driver one week ago Sunday.

21 News was there as the events unfolded.

This weekend we talked with two of the injured young men. All of them are worried about their friend, 19-year-old Tyler Austin, who was hurt the worst and is in critical condition.

"My friends, I just hope they get better soon and I'll keep them in my prayers," said Chester Mitchell, one of the victims of the hit and run.

Another one of the victims, Felix Rodriguez, said the driver of the car had his lights on until he reached the people and then he turned his lights off and accelerated.

Hector Tejda and Ricardo Reyes were also injured in that hit and run.

Police do not believe Friday's assault is related to the hit and run that killed Brown.

However those struck believe the act was an intentional.
