Driver in court for hit-and-run accident in Youngstown

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - A 20-year-old Youngstown woman appeared in court on allegations that she drove the car that crashed into people holding a vigil for the victim of a deadly hit and run accident.

20-year-old Rochelle B. Taylor was arraigned in Mahoning County Common Please court Tuesday on charges of 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, then left the scene of the accident. One of the victims was seriously injured.

The victims were holding a vigil 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.

Taylor was booked into the county jail, but is free until her next court hearing.
