Sheriff Deputies arrested 19 year old Dante Altieri this afternoon and charged him in the deadly hit and run crash that happened on Route 57 in Liverpool early last Saturday morning.
Deputies say 54-year-old Joseph Roderka was hit by a car while out walking with his 21-year-old daughter south on Oswego Road.
Sheriff Kevin Walsh says Altieri was unsure of what he hit so he went home and told his parents what happened. When he and his parents drove back to the scene they were stopped by State Police and Sheriffâ??s Deputies.
Rescue crews took Roderka to Upstate, where he was later pronounced dead. Roderkaâ??s daughter was not hurt in the incident.
Criminal Investigations Division Detectives charged Altieri with Leaving the Scene of a Fatal Accident and Driving across Hazard Markings. He was charged this afternoon in Town of Clay court.
