Bob Joseph/WNBF News

A Susquehanna County man has been arrested in connection with a deadly hit-and-run incident in Great Bend township.

Authorities say Roger Radakovich of Hallstead has been charged with homicide by vehicle and involuntary manslaughter. He also faces a count of operating a vehicle without insurance and other related charges.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, Radakovich turned himself in at a magistrate’s office in New Milford this morning.

Investigators believe Radakovich was the driver of a sport utility vehicle that struck 20-year-old Earl Youngs of Hallstead. Police say Youngs apparently was hit as he walked along Route 11 during the early morning of January 15.

Witnesses told police a silver-colored SUV that had stopped near Youngs left the scene.

Police received a tip that Radakovich owned a vehicle that may have been involved in the incident.

Troopers say they found a silver Jeep Liberty with hood damage at Radakovich’s home.

Investigators say they determined it was the vehicle that had struck Youngs as he walked in the southbound lane of Route 11.
