HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) - A 21-year-old Long Island man has been arrested by Long Island homicide detectives in connection with a fatal hit-and-run crash in Hempstead.

Newsday reports (https://nwsdy.li/2ifpBSw ) Christopher Ebron was charged Tuesday with leaving the scene of a fatal car accident earlier in the day and is now being held in lieu of bail.

Nassau County police say Ebron was driving a Mercedes-Benz north on North Franklin Avenue when he struck the unidentified female victim as she was crossing the street. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

It’s unclear whether Ebron has an attorney who could comment.
