Judge Lowers Bond for Daycare Worker Charged with Hitting, Killing Six-Year-Old Boy
A judge Thursday lowered the bond for an Erie daycare worker who was charged in a hit-and-run crash that killed a six-year-old boy.
Sebarundi Yohana, 60, can now post 10 percent of $50,000 to get out of prison as he awaits his next court date. If Yohana does post bond, the judge said he is not allowed to leave Erie or drive.
Investigators said Yohana had taken a co-worker home and was heading back to First Time Learners Academy on McClelland Ave. in early April when he hit Nyon Warren near the Metroplex Nightclub along Buffalo Rd. and did not stop.
Police arrested Yohana three weeks after police said he hit Warren. He was driving a mini-van that belonged to the daycare facility, according to investigators.
He faces charges including involuntary manslaughter.
Police spent weeks combing through more than 50 pieces of security camera video to track down the hitting vehicle and Yohana.
Family and friends have since put up a makeshift memorial at the site of the fatal collision.
