Connor Lynskey, an 18-year-old, was walking home from a Jason Aldean concert with his friends when he was suddenly struck by an incoming vehicle. His friends last saw him when he ran ahead of them to catch up with another friend, but they quickly contacted police when he never returned to the campsite later.
Responding police initiated a search for the Lynskey once he reported missing by his friends, but they couldn’t find him anywhere. Investigators returned to the campsite and interviewed several individuals. They soon discovered that several witnesses reported hearing a collision and seeing someone speed off. Police returned to the area where the collision was heard, and deputies finally found Lynskey nearly eleven hours after he was initially reported missing. Tragically, he was lying in a ditch along Sumner Road. Emergency medical personnel were rushed to the scene, but Lynskey was pronounced dead before being removed from the ditch.
Investigators searched through evidence left at the scene, and they determined that the teenager had been struck by a vehicle. It’s evident that the perpetrator left the scene without calling emergency services for the injured boy.
The following day, police picked up Jennifer L. Serrano, a 48-year-old resident of Irving, under the suspicion of a hit-and-run. After examining the evidence and interviewing the suspect, the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office charged her with second-degree vehicular manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident involving injuries. She was taken to the Genesee County Jail where she will await trial or meet a $100,000 cash bail.
