MILWAUKEE (AP) - A second teenager has been charged in a hit-and-run crash that killed a Milwaukee couple.

The 17-year-old was charged Monday with operating a vehicle without the owner’s consent as a passenger. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports police identified the teen as one of five passengers in a stolen SUV that collided with a car before continuing eastbound, striking another vehicle and then coming to a stop.

The driver and passenger of the car, 74-year-old Bernard Hanson and 64-year-old Mary Hanson, were killed in the Feb. 22 crash.

Authorities say the driver of the stolen SUV, 18-year-old Michael Hobbs, and all five of the teenage passengers fled the scene.

Hobbs is charged with second-degree reckless homicide, hit and run resulting in death and driving a vehicle without the owner’s consent.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Hobbs.
