Two Teens Arrested Over Fatal Mitcham Hit And Run SHATTERED: Dad Keith Stevens died in hospital on Thursday

Two teenagers are in custody following a fatal hit-run collision in Mitcham on Wednesday.

An 18-year-old Seaford man and 17-year-old Mooroolbark boy have been arrested in relation to the collision at 4:15pm at the intersection of Glenburnie Road and Orient Avenue. 

33-year-old Mitcham motorcyclist Keith Stevens sustained life-threatening injuries when he was dragged by the stolen black BMW for 85 metres.

He sustained burns to more than half of his body after the bike caught alight and died in hospital yesterday.

In a statement his family remembered him as a "loving father, partner and son" and a "gentle giant".

They've revealed Stevens' organs will be donated.

“Keith was an organ donor and we know he would be pleased that in these most tragic of circumstances he was able to help improve the quality of others’ lives,” his family said in a statement this morning.

“We thank the media for your work in publicising the story so that we may find those responsible, the passers who stopped to help and the incredible staff at the Alfred Hospital who kept Keith sedated on life support till we could reach him to say our goodbyes.”
