Authorities investigating 4 fatal hit-skips in Franklin County

Law enforcement agencies are investigating four fatal hit-skips in Franklin County.

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ohio — Investigators are looking into four deadly hit-and-run crashes this month — all in Franklin County.

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office says there are two words to remember if you're ever the driver in a situation like this:

“Just stop. You know, if you've been involved in a crash, if you think you hit something or somebody, please stop, remain at the scene, wait for law enforcement or other public safety to respond. That's very important. In some of these cases, you might not even be at fault for the crash,” said Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Jim Gilbert.
