In a press release Ellenville Cheif of Police, Phillip Mattricion, said "The Ellenville Police are currently investigating a hit and run accident that occurred on Maple Avenue by Yankee Place at about 10:10 am" on Friday morning October, 9th.
Sadly, there was a fatality due to the accident. According to Cheif Mattricion's statement, a dog was hit by the vehicle in question. Mattricion said the driver was "traveling west on Maple Avenue when they struck and killed a dog in front of the owner."
The statement continues by saying the white van did not stop and continued driving towards the direction of Route 209.
