Mother of 18-year-old run down after Darien Lake concert speaks at drunk driver’s sentencing

Genesee County

GENESEE COUNTY, N.Y. (WIVB) — A woman convicted of running down and killing an 18-year-old leaving a Darien Lake concert was sentenced Monday to a total of 4 2/3rds to 14 years in prison.

Jennifer Serrano was arrested and released for a DWI about half an hour after the crash that killed Connor Lynskey, a native of New Hartford. After the Aug. 2018 crash, deputies said Lynskey was walking toward his campsite.

Prosecutors said Serrano, of Irving, was leaving a Jason Aldean concert.

Serrano was not offered a plea deal and was given a maximum sentence for charges including vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident.

Lynskey’s family set up a memorial scholarship fund after he died. You can find details here.
