Police Track Down Hit-and-Run Driver in Greenwich, New York

Greenwich hit and run driver

GREENWICH, NY- The dailyvoice.com writes that police have apprehended a suspect in a hit-and-run collision that took place on January 26, 2019. The incident occurred at about 11 p.m. near Byram when a driver hit three vehicles that were parked on the road and then fled the scene.

Police located the vehicle involved in Port Chester. The owner spoke to investigators and stated that he or she had not been operating the vehicle when the collision took place. The suspect, Esteban Lopez, 18, of Bridgeport, was arrested and is facing charges for “evading responsibility and unsafe movement.”

Lopez’s bond was set at $100; she is scheduled to appear in court on February 11, 2019.

Hit-and-run crashes are incredibly common in New York City and have been becoming more common across the United States. The increase in the number of drivers fleeing the scene of accidents has frustrated many residents and police officers. In many cases, the drivers are able to get away from the accident scene and are never apprehended or identified. This is especially true when the crashes only involve property damage but are often the case even when the driver hits a person and causes severe injuries or death.

Police often lack the necessary resources to go after hit-and-run drivers, and in many of these crashes, there are no witnesses. Early alert systems which enlist the public’s help in identifying hit-and-run drivers and their vehicles have been implemented as part of the effort to curb the number of drivers who go uncaught and unpunished after fleeing crash scenes. Unfortunately, police are still having limited success in arresting many of these offenders.
