TOWN OF NIAGARA – A hit and run crash was reported on Lockport Road Monday night but Niagara County sheriff’s deputies aren’t sure that the injured teen actually was struck.
There was no description of the vehicle or signs of a crash, sheriff’s officials said.
Alex Barry, 17, of Garlow Road, who said he was hit by a car, remained hospitalized Tuesday in Erie County Medical Center. Information about his condition and extent of his injuries was not released.
Barry was found along the road, complaining of widespread pain, and said he was struck by a vehicle just before 9 p.m. in the 6300 block of Lockport Road, near Military Road, Undersheriff Michael Filicetti said.
“His story was very vague and at one point said he wasn’t even sure he was hit by a vehicle. We are still trying to determine what happened,” Filicetti said. “We found no evidence of a vehicle, no skid marks and no signs of a crash.”
Because of Barry’s report and signs of memory loss, protocol determined that he be taken by Mercy Flight to ECMC, the undersheriff said.
