Teen in custody after Ithaca hit-and-run: Police don’t ID suspect or charges against suspect

Ithaca police are investigating a hit-and-run accident that happened around 6 a.m. on Saturday on East Seneca Street.

According to a news release, the vehicle involved was found a short time later in a parking lot and had fled the initial crash at a high rate of speed.


The vehicle and driver then apparently returned to the scene a short time later; and that’s when the driver resisted.

Police say they were able to calm the driver down, but drugs, alcohol, and a loaded handgun magazine were found inside the vehicle.

The driver, who is under 18 and cannot be identified, was charged with an array of offenses. They were not detailed in a press release.

No additional information was available about the incident.
