Around 7 a.m. on April 27, police responded to a report of an unconscious man in the road.

There were no other vehicles in the area, police said.

Police found the vehicle involved in the incident later the same day, but Myers wasn’t charged until weeks later. Investigators say the teen has been cooperating throughout the investigation.
