SUFFOLK COUNTY, NEW YORK – According to an online news article published by abc7ny.com, a 31-year-old woman was struck and killed in a Long Island hit-and-run accident, and reports indicate the woman knew the man accused of causing the accident.
A recent evening hit-and-run accident left a 31-year-old woman with fatal injuries. The person allegedly responsible for causing the accident, a 30-year-old man, was known to the woman. The accident happened at the intersection of Miller Place Road and Echo Avenue in Miller Place.
The woman was struck by the 30-year-old man’s Hyundai Elantra, and the man subsequently fled the scene of the accident. The woman was taken to a local hospital where she later died of her injuries. Local police investigating the accident determined the 30-year-old man was the hit-and-run driver responsible for the woman’s death. The police arrested the man at his parents’ home.
The 30-year-old man has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident resulting in death. He is currently being held on $75,000 bail. According to the police, the man stated that he “clipped” the woman who was walking along the roadside, and he failed to stop because there was an outstanding warrant for his arrest. The man’s attorneys described him as “homeless” in court. The man has a criminal history, including an arrest for felony burglary and several unspecified misdemeanors.
Additionally, blood-alcohol testing was conducted on the 30-year-old man, and the results are incomplete at this time. As such, it is unclear whether alcohol played a role in the cause of this hit-and-run accident.
