Three people have been charged following a hit and run accident in a suspected stolen car at West Court and North Madison streets Thursday afternoon, according to law enforcement officials.

Police said Jonathan C. Onley, 27, of 1323 Floyd Ave., took another person’s vehicle without permission, and on a suspended license, and then picked up two other people and their 1-year-old child.

The two others were Ashley M. Quigley, 22, and Joshua J. Sherman, 26, both of 7117 Taft Ave., the mother and father of the infant, authorities stated.

The stolen vehicle was then involved in a collision with another vehicle at the intersection of West Court and North Madison streets at about 4:20 p.m., according to police.

Police said that Onley fled the scene of the crash, and he
abandoned the vehicle elsewhere.

All three were eventually located and taken into custody, the law enforcers said.

Police said Onley is charged with one count each of third-degree possession of stolen property, third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

Police said Quigley and Sherman were charged with one count each of endangering the welfare of a child for not seeking medical attention for their 1-year-old following the crash.

All three are scheduled to appear in City Court, the law enforcement officials added.
