Following the tragic hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of Pamela Rubenstein, 57, on Tuesday, the driver involved has come forward and issued an apology.
Rubenstein was fatally struck while cycling near Klem and Five Mile Line roads and succumbed to her injuries on Thursday.
Local authorities had reported the driver fled the scene after the incident.
Ryan LaDuca publicly admitted his involvement in the accident and expressed profound remorse to the Rubenstein family.
In his statement, which was published first by News10NBC, LaDuca said, “I am devastated that this accident led to the tragic loss of life.”
He detailed how he voluntarily surrendered his vehicle to the Webster Police without a warrant and provided a sworn statement acknowledging he was the driver in the crash.
LaDuca, regretting his decision to leave the scene, conveyed his willingness to cooperate and face the consequences of his actions. As of now, officials have not pressed charges.
