SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A man wanted for a hit-and-run crash that killed two people has surrendered to authorities at the St. Joseph County jail.
Joel Barrozo was charged with five felonies Monday, including two counts of leaving the scene of a fatal crash in South Bend. He'll appear in court Tuesday. It wasn't known if he has an attorney who could comment.
Police say a Dodge Avenger rear-ended another northbound car, sending that vehicle into southbound traffic. The crash occurred Sunday night near South Bend International Airport. Marvi Thomas and her 9-year-old son, Christopher, were killed. Three more people in another vehicle were seriously injured, including a 17-month-old girl.
State police dogs searched neighborhoods, but police believe the 30-year-old Barrozo and another man were picked up by another vehicle.
