BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - Police in Binghamton are investigating a hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of a college student from New York City over the weekend.

Authorities say 20-year-old Stefani Lineva, of Queens, was found lying on the eastbound lane of Route 434 around 2 a.m. Saturday. She was taken to UHS Wilson Medical Center in neighboring Johnson City, where she was pronounced dead.

Police say she had suffered severe injuries consistent with being struck by a vehicle.

Binghamton University officials say Lineva was a member of the college’s tennis team who was in her first semester at the college after transferring from Adelphi University on Long Island.

In a statement releases Sunday, Binghamton University President Harvey Stenger praised the student’s “spirit, passion and engagement” with everyone she met on campus.
