Brothers turn selves in after fatal motorcycle hit-skip

ELYRIA, OH (WOIO) - Two brothers turned themselves in for a fatal hit-skip accident on Thursday.

Both are being held at the Lorain County Jail. Andre, who has no bond, is charged with failure to stop after an accident, while Allen, who is being held on a $100,000 bond, is charged with obstructing justice. Additional charges are pending.
