JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Jamestown truck driver is facing new felony counts of illegal weapon possession after authorities say he struck and killed a teenager on New Year’s Eve.

15-year-old Alexis Hughan was crossing W. 6th Street at Washington in the city when she was hit by an 18-wheel tractor-trailer driven by Randal Rolison.

In the days following the incident, the 58-year-old driver was charged with driving while ability impaired by drugs and leaving the scene of an incident involving death.

Now, Rolison is facing additional charges. On Tuesday morning, a Chautauqua County Grand Jury handed up a three-count indictment accusing him of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Authorities say that an investigation revealed Rolison had three unregistered handguns in a storage unit in the Town of Busti. They were found on January 7, they say.

Rolison could still face additional charges as a result of the hit-and-run on New Year’s Eve. Blood toxicology test results have yet to be revealed.
