JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - A man charged in a pair of hit-and-run traffic deaths near Janesville was turned in by his father.
Rock County Sheriff Bob Spoden said Saroeun Tigh of Park City Illinois called deputies last Thursday -- five days after his son allegedly drove an SUV into a pair of oncoming motorcycles.
24-year-old Mitchell Vance and 18-year-old Devin Julius were killed. They were among five bikers riding on Highway 14 on the night of Easter.
Officials said Pal Tigh crossed a center line and struck two of the riders, and then kept going. Sheriff Spoden said Tigh noticed damage on his son's vehicle -- and he wanted to do the right thing by calling authorities.
Pal was arrested at his father's home. He's in jail in Waukegan Illinois, awaiting extradition to Rock County to face two felony counts of hit-and-run causing death.
