AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) - An 83-year-old bicyclist was seriously injured after being struck on Hopkins Road near Sheridan Drive in Amherst, and a second crash led police to the alleged hit-and-run driver.
Police say the first crash happened around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Jerauld Panosian of Williamsville was hit while riding his bike and taken to ECMC with skull fractures, a broken arm, and a broken femur. The driver who hit Panosian fled the scene.
The following day, officers were called to Mill Street in Amherst for a one-vehicle accident. Police say pieces of the vehicle left at Wednesday's scene matched the vehicle in Thursday's crash and arrested the driver, 34-year-old Amanda Lojacono of Williamsville.
Lojacono is charged with felony leaving the scene of a serious injury accident. She was arraigned and locked up in $10,000 bail.
Further charges are pending in both accidents.
