A Lewiston man charged a fatal hit-and-run accident June 29 on Lewiston Road was sentenced to one to four years in prison Wednesday.
Carmen Crapsi, 22, was sentenced in Niagara County Court, according to Channel 4 News.
Crapsi was charged with a felony count of leaving the scene of a fatal accident after surrendering to police hours after he struck 34-year-old Lorelei Walker.
It's Crapsi's second serious vehicle arrest that month. He also faced driving while ability impaired by drugs and other charges for an incident on June 1 in Warsaw.
On June 29, the sheriff's office said Crapsi hit Walker about 5 a.m. while driving on Lewiston Road, near the Upper Mountain Road overpass. He then drove off.
In the hours after the crash, the sheriff's office released information that they were looking for a purple vehicle with blue and white pin striping with windshield and headlight damage, based on evidence at the scene.
Sheriff James Voutour said shortly before noon, investigators received a call from Crapsi's attorney and police were directed to the location of the vehicle. Crapsi then turned himself in at the sheriff's office.
