GOSHEN — Charges against an Elkhart man accused of killing one teenager and injuring another in a June hit-and-run crash have been upgraded to include more serious felonies.

Ronnie Hapner, 35, was arrested following the June 4 accident that killed Blaine Fisher and seriously injured McKade Nielsen. The 18-year-olds were riding a bicycle and a skateboard in the 3000 block of Greenleaf Boulevard when they were hit by a pickup truck shortly after 11 p.m.
