Father, Daughter Plead Not Guilty To Hit and Run Charges

Posted: Updated:
LIVINGSTON -

A Washington state father and daughter pleaded not guilty to felony charges in connection with a hit and run that killed an 81-year-old man in Park County District Court on Tuesday.

Wryan Young, 31, and Westley Young, 50, are both charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. Wryan is also charged with an accident involving another person or deceased person.

Police say Elgie Bedford from Wasilla, Alaska was struck by oncoming traffic while walking westbound on I-90 near Big Timber in September.

Court documents state that the Young's were at the Exxon station near the interstate in Livingston, inspected their vehicle, and then asked for the location of the closest car wash.

Later that day, a body part was found at a car wash in Livingston.

If convicted, Young and her father could face up to 10 years for tampering with evidence and be fined up to $50,000. Young could also face up to 10 years for failing to report the incident and be fined $50,000.

At this time their next court date has not been scheduled.
