TWO teenagers have been arrested following a fatal hit-and-run crash in Melbourne on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old motorcyclist suffered life-threatening injuries and died in hospital yesterday, police confirmed.


After the crash, the occupants of the BMW then allegedly committed an aggravated burglary at an address in Scoresby.

An 18-year-old Seaford man and 17-year-old Mooroolbark boy have since been arrested.

Police are still looking for two others believed to have been involved.
