Two people have been arrested in connection with a hit and run accident in Lancaster Saturday night.

Brett Daniel Wright, 18, and Joshua Neal Barton, 19, both of Lancaster, have been charged with attempted murder, according to the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office.

At 11:25 p.m. Saturday, Brandon Scott Maree and Ricky Christopher Jones were walking down Ruth Street when the driver of a black Chevrolet Impala hit them from behind and then sped away.

The Highway Patrol asked for help with the investigation and, alongside the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department and Highway Patrol Reconstruction Unit, located the vehicle and its occupants, said Bryan McDougald with the Highway Patrol.

The Lancaster County Sheriff's Office took over the investigation.

The investigation revealed that there was some type of incident involving unlawful drugs at Barton and Wright’s home. Barton and Wright left the home with the intention to assault the other people involved in the incident at the home, officials say. Barton and Wright located Maree and Jones walking on Ruth St. and intentionally struck them with the car, the release states.

Police have not determined whether Jones and Maree were involved in the incident at the home.
