Ohio man sought in hit-and-run crash that killed 2

WAVERLY, Ohio (AP) — The State Highway Patrol is looking for the driver of a car who fled a southern Ohio crash that left two people dead and a 14-year-old boy injured.

The patrol says an arrest warrant was issued Tuesday by the Pike County Court for 30-year-old Paul Riggs of Waverly, wanted on three counts of aggravated vehicular homicide and one count of aggravated vehicular assault.

The patrol said the Monday evening crash in Pike County killed 35-year-old Tina Ogier and her unborn child and a passenger, 19-year-old Mary Jane Cooper, all of Beaver, Ohio, and injured a 14-year-old male passenger.

The car driven by Ogier caught fire after the crash, and a trooper suffered burns as he tried to get the occupants out.
