Youngstown police working on leads in recent hit-and-runs

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Youngstown police have some leads in two recent hit-and-run cases.

Both of them occurred in practically the same area on Hylda Avenue.

The second one happened as people were about to hold a vigil for the victim of the first one.

Twenty-three-year old Robby Brown died from injuries after being struck in the early morning hours on February 3rd as he was leaving a bar on Hylda Avenue.

As family and friends gathered to remember him on February 8th, a car traveling at a high speed struck five young men.

"Our accident investigator has narrowed it down to several people of interest. Right now we're going to have to wait for some forensic evidence to come back to try to bring these cases to the court room. So hopefully in the next week or two we'll have that information and bring that to the prosecutor's office," said Youngstown Police Chief Rod Foley.

Nineteen-year old Tyler Austin suffered the most traumatic injuries during the crash at the vigil.
