Tragic accident that occurred on Wednesday, January 13 at around 11:42 AM in Amagansett, New York. 36-year-old Yuris Cruz was pushing a stroller with two children when she was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver. 28-year-old Mark Corrado was traveling in a Dodge pick up truck when he struck the victim along Montauk Highway. After hitting the victim he continued without stopping, and abandoned the vehicle in a wooded area on Gilberts Path. Sadly, Ms. Cruz died from her injuries sustained in the crash. The two children, ages four and one, suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to Stony Brook University Hospital for treatment. Corrado eventually turned himself in to the East Hampton detectives at Suffolk County‘s first precinct. He was arrested and charged with felony leaving the scene of an incident without reporting. We send our thoughts and prayers to the family of the victim.
