Suspect in fatal hit-and-run motorcycle accident turned in by father

Posted under Car Accidents

Twenty-four-year-old Sambath Pal, who is suspected of driving the sport utility vehicle that hit two motorcyclists on Sunday, April 20 in Janesville, Wisconsin, was turned in to the authorities by his father, Saroeun Tigh on Monday, April 28.

The victims who died in the fatal accident were identified as 24-year-old Mitchell Vance and 18-year-old Devin Julius, both from Janesville.

Tigh told police investigators that his son’s 2004 Infiniti QX56 had front-end damage when the latter returned home to Park City, Illinois after a weekend in Janesville. He later found out from his relatives in Janesville that authorities in the area were looking for a black SUV that matched the description of Pal’s vehicle, and that this vehicle figured in a hit and run.

Rock County Sheriff Robert Spoden said Pal, who is currently incarcerated in a Lake County, Illinois jail, could be in Wisconsin within four to five days if he doesn’t fight extradition; if he does, the transfer could take up to 90 days.
