MORRISTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) - A teenager from Lancaster was struck and killed in northern New York, in what police describe as a hit and run.
New York State Police say 19-year-old Benjamin Schick was walking along County Route 6 in Morristown with 19-year-old John Robinson around 9 p.m. when he was struck by an SUV. Troopers say Schick, a volunteer fireman in Lancaster, was on the paved shoulder at the time of the accident. Robinson was not hit, and was able to provide a description of the vehicle that drove away.
About an hour later, State Police received a report of a 2001 Honda CRV that had been stolen from a parking lot close to the scene. The stole vehicle was found Tuesday morning around 10 a.m. in the City of Ogdensburg.
The vehicle has been secured and investigators will determine if it was involved in the fatal accident.
