OTTAWA COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Two people accused of hitting and killing a man with their cars and then driving away are due in court Monday to face charges.
Ottawa County deputies are not releasing the names of the suspects at this point, but friends of the victim tell us they are Jeremie Collins and Maly Phongsavan.
Jail records show both are behind bars Monday morning on felony homicide charges.
Investigators believe the two may have been drag racing when they hit Joshua Owens with their cars early Sunday morning in Park Township.
Friends say he was walking to an ATM across the street from the Itty Bitty Bar on Ottawa Beach Road when the crashes happened.
Both suspects took off and were arrested a few hours later after deputies received a tip.
Owens' friends set up a roadside memorial at the crash site. They plan to keep that vigil going until justice is served.
Both suspects are expected to be arraigned Monday on felony homicide charges. We'll bring you the details once they appear in court.
