UPDATE: Incident was Not Hit and Run
2/6/2014 (Updated 2/7/2014 12:25:49 AM)It was not a hit and run-- that's what Endicott Police tell us, following their investigation into an incident involving a car which struck several people Thursday afternoon on Riverview Drive:
Police say the car hit two people who were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police also say they have located the car and driver.
One person we spoke to said she was also hit by the car, but not taken to the hospital.
"He started backing up and we started running away but I didn't really get out of the way in time and I got hit into the snowbank over there. And he didn't stop either he just kept backing up and I got stuck under the car until he drove away," said tenth grade student Connor Depofi.
"It's the worst. it's one thing to back up and scare somebody but it's another to back up and actually hit somebody and then take off after you do it. so I hope he pays the price and I'll be there to prosecute if needed because you know it's my daughter," said Edward Depofi the father of Connor Depofi.
Endicott Police tell us the incident began with a verbal argument in the street.
The driver of the car did not intentionally strike the victims with the vehicle, police say --but charges will be filed.
