Driver remains at-large after hit-and-run, but teenager released from hospital

The teen who was hit by a pickup truck and left to fend for herself, with a number of injuries – has been released from the hospital.

WHEC-TV says 15-year-old Marcell Grady was discharged after being hit while crossing the road at Alling Drive and State Street on Monday.

The driver spoke to the teen, but left her laying on the ground. The teen managed to walk to a Chinese restaurant, where the owner called 911.

The investigation remains active and the driver of that pickup truck has not been located.

Anyone with information about the accident or pickup truck should call the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office or dial 911.




Residents react as suspect remains at-large after hit-and-run in Sodus

Deputies report that they’re investigating a hit-and-run accident in Sodus, which resulted in a teen being seriously injured.

On Monday around 5:38 p.m. a gray pickup truck struck a teen wheel she was attempting to cross the road at Aling Drive and State Street in the Village of Sodus.

The male operator spoke to the teen through his open windows. He then fled the scene before authorities arrived – while the teen was still laying on the ground.

Deputies say the teen suffered multiple injuries and was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital via Sodus Town Ambulance.

She remains in guarded condition at this time. Deputies say the investigation is on-going.

Residents say they are worried.

Ryan Debesnoyes told 13WHAM-TV that he was concerned with it.

“It’s scary. It’s concerning,” Debesnoyes, a senior at Sodus High School, said. “I hope he or she comes through and admits to what they did,” he added.

“It’s tragic that somebody could stop and talk to somebody and then still drive away,” Mike Garlock said after the news spread about the accident. “Doesn’t seem possible.”

Garlock was just leaving his business on State Street, when he walked outside and saw the aftermath.

“I saw the different ambulance cars parked out front,” he recalls. Police say the victim walked nearly a quarter mile from where she was hit – all the way to a nearby restaurant. Sodus Fire Chief David Madison says whoever did this needs to come forward.

“They should have called 911,” he says. “And if they haven’t, they should call [911] now.”
