COLESVILLE (WBNG) – The Broome County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance in an investigation into a fatal hit-and-run in the town of Colesville.

The sheriff’s office said a pickup truck struck and killed a minor on a bicycle around 5:30 p.m. in the area of ​​1180 State Rt. 7 on Jan. 1.

Authorities described the truck as a full-size truck manufactured by GM in the early 2000s. It may be gray in color. The truck suffered damage to the headlights, grille, bumper and fenders. He was carrying a square, white object in his bed that looked like a refrigerator or a chest freezer.

The sheriff’s office posted video of the truck from a home camera on its Facebook page.

Anyone with information regarding the truck is asked to contact the Broome County Sheriff’s Office at 607-778-1189.

Broome County Sheriff Fred Akshar will hold a press conference regarding the incident later Monday, just his second day on the job. Akshar succeeded retired Broome County Sheriff David Harder, who served for 58 years.

Akshar was previously a New York State Senator in the 52nd District, but also has a background in law enforcement.
