Woman charged with hit and run accident during Youngstown vigil

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Mahoning County Grand Jury has indicted a 20-year-old Youngstown woman in connection with a hit and run crash that occurred during a vigil for the victim of another hit and run accident that turned deadly.

20-year-old Rochelle B. Taylor is charged with failing to stop after an accident and obstructing justice.

Investigators tell 21 News that Taylor was driving the white Pontiac Sunfire that struck five people on Hylda Avenue on February 3. One of the victims was seriously injured.

The victims were part of a vigil being held for Robert Brown Junior, who was killed by a hit and run driver in the same area just a few days  before.

Police say Taylor has been very cooperative during the investigation.

She has yet to turn herself into police.
