YORK, S.C. (AP) — Authorities have charged three people in connection with a fatal hit-and-run in York on Christmas.

In a news release, York police say 42-year-old Dana E. Lanier of York was driving when he struck and killed 47-year-old Anthony Shannon. Shannon was walking along a street the night of Dec. 25. The vehicle drove off.

According to jail officials, Lanier was charged with hit and run accident with death.

Officials say 40-year-old Ben J. Davison and 22-year-old Joshua D. Turner, both of Clover, were charged with accessory after the fact.

Conditions were foggy that night, but police say it is unclear what role, if any, the weather played in the collision.

Authorities say a tip to York County Crime Stoppers led to the arrests.

It is unclear whether the suspects have attorneys.
