OVERLAND PARK, KS (AP/KCTV) — Johnson County authorities have charged Bradley Woodworth in a hit-and-run collision that killed two students.

The Kansas City Star reported that a 45-year-old Olathe man was arrested Thursday and booked into the Johnson County jail on suspicion of failing to stop after an accident resulting in death.

On Friday, according to Johnson County court records confirmed by KCTV5 News, he was charged with leaving the scene of an accident. 

Police say the crash on Saturday killed 18-year-old Matthew Bloskey, of Overland Park, and 20-year-old Samuel Siebuhr, of Kansas City, Kansas.

Overland Park police say a van belonging to the suspect may have hit Siebuhr's car as both vehicles were driving east.

Siebuhr apparently lost control, clipped another vehicle, then crashed head-on into a vehicle driven by Bloskey. Both drivers died at the scene.

Siebuhr was studying Kansas City Kansas Community College. Bloskey was a senior at Rockhurst High School in Kansas City, Missouri.
