Driver surrenders in fatal Walton County crash

MONROE — Georgia State Patrol officials say a man has surrendered to authorities in the hit-and-run death of a 16-year-old boy.

Investigators said Wednesday that a man went to the Walton County Sheriff’s Office after watching the news last night to turn himself in. Officials say damage from the man’s car confirmed that he was involved in the teen’s death.

Authorities have said Jacob Little was trying to retrieve his skateboard when he was hit by a series of cars Tuesday morning.

Authorities initially thought the teen was hit by three cars and now say he may have been hit by four.

The drivers’ identities have not been released.
