    Quick Facts:

    • The crash happened Friday morning at Highway 66 and 530 Road
    • One woman died and another was critically injured
    • Police arrested two brothers in the hit and run
    • Bond set at more than $100,000 for each brother

    Bond is set for two brothers accused in connection with a deadly hit-and-run.

    Noelle New, 18, died after being hit by a truck, investigators say, was driven by Gage Shriver, 19. His brother, Dakota Shriver, 21, was a passenger. 

    FOX23’s Anglea Hong was in court Monday for their first appearance and found the accident may have started with a fight between the brothers. 
     
    Court paperwork shows Dakota Shriver was fighting with his younger brother about driving drunk and loud music when they got into a physical fight. Both brothers claimed they didn't know they hit the two teens.
     
    Oklahoma Highway Troopers believe Gage Shriver was driving a black truck along 530 Road in Verdigris around 3 a.m. Friday.

    According to court paperwork obtained by FOX23, he told investigators he and his brother were coming back from the gas station when they swerved to hit a deer. 

    The investigator says Gage Shriver then his changed his story, then said he and Dakota Shriver got into a fight while driving, crashed through a fence and “duked it” out right there. 

    Gage Shriver ended up with a black eye and both left the scene. Investigators say he admitted to drinking three to four beers. 

    The brothers both told investigators they didn't know they hit New and Miranda Talley. 
     
    Investigators believe the brothers went home and spoke to their mother about the crash and returned to the scene with her. Around 5:50 a.m. a call came in to the 911 dispatch center from Gage and Dakota Shriver, saying they found the teens, not that they had actually hit them. 
     
    At first, OHP believed the brothers were just witnesses, until they found Dakota Shriver’s wallet in the field during their investigation and linked the Shriver brothers to the crime.

    New was found dead at the scene. Talley is in critical condition at the hospital. The girls were walking to QuikTrip when they were hit. 

    Both men are charged with manslaughter and bond was set at $132,000 for Dakota Shriver and $144,000 for Gage Shriver. 
     
    Their lawyer did not want to comment.
