Passengers in a stolen Jeep that was involved in a fatal crash Friday have been charged in an unrelated crime.

That Jeep ran a red light at Byrkit and McKinley, killing its driver and seriously injuring a passenger. The three 19 year-old passengers in the Jeep have also been charged in connection with an armed robbery incident on January 21. Two of them also face a charge in connection with kidnapping.

Court documents say they conspired to rob a victim using a Tinder profile as bait. The victim escaped after being robbed of $60 cash.

The driver of the Jeep involved in the crash on Friday ran from the scene and has not been identified.
