Dakota Sullivan was driving the truck and Devin Sullivan was a passenger.

“Dakota was read his Miranda Rights and said he didn’t know anything about the vehicle other then his brother, Devin Sullivan, a passenger in the vehicle, had it and asked him to drive because Devin didn’t have a valid license. Devin was read his Miranda Rights and said he had permission from the vehicle owner to drive it.”

Both men were arrested and transported to the Lawrence County Jail.
