Sheriff’s Deputies Arrest Subject For Hit And Run And Driving Unlicensed/Uninsured.

Erie County Sheriff Timothy B. Howard reports the investigation of a January 5 hit-and-run incident in Grand Island, resulted in the arrest of 28-year-old Brandon Smith.

Deputies responded to a complaint of a hit-and-run crash along Staley Road on Sunday at approximately 7:52 p.m.  The victim stated a dark-colored pickup truck struck his vehicle and left the scene.

On January 6, the Sheriff’s Office received an anonymous tip about a Ford truck with recent right front damage.  When deputies spoke with Smith, he admitted to operating the vehicle on January 5 and stated he thought he struck a deer during the drive.  The individual also admitted to driving the truck with a revoked license due to a previous DWI conviction.

Smith is charged with a misdemeanor count of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, and vehicle and traffic violations for leaving the scene of an accident, operating an unregistered vehicle on the highway, and operating a vehicle without insurance.

He was released on tickets.
