NILES, Ohio (WKBN) – A suspect in a hit-and-run crash involving a pedestrian turned himself in to authorities.
James Mason, 37, is charged with leaving the scene of an accident and tampering with evidence.
A warrant for his arrest was issued on Oct. 10, and the Niles Police Department posted his photo on Facebook then, asking for information on his whereabouts.
The charges stem from a crash on Sept. 29 that injured a pedestrian on Youngstown Warren Road, near Olive Garden.
Mason appeared in Niles Municipal Court on Tuesday, and his case was bound over to a Trumbull County grand jury. Bond was set at $50,000.
