Le Roy woman charged with felony after man suffers serious injury while exiting moving SUV
Lorie A. Litolff, 57, of Craigie Street, Le Roy, has been accused of leaving the scene of a serious injury accident following an incident on Lake Street, Village of Le Roy, at 5:05 p.m. Saturday where a man exited a moving vehicle and suffered a head injury.
The charge of leaving the scene of a serious injury accident is a felony.
She is also charged with DWI, failure to report an accident with injuries, driving without an ignition interlock device, and failure to submit to a breath test.
Litolff was jailed on $10,000 bail.
The name of the victim has not been released and there's no current information available on his condition.
The investigation is being led by Sgt. Emily McNamara, who reports that police have yet to determine why the victim exited the vehicle while it was moving but believe he did so voluntarily.
Several witnesses were interviewed and police believe Litolff and the victim were engaged in a verbal argument prior to the man exiting the vehicle.
When he exited, according to McNamara, he lost his balance and fell, striking the pavement, which is the cause of at least some of the victim's injuries.
After the victim exited the vehicle, witnesses said the dark-colored, small SUV continued northbound on Lake Street.
Witness descriptions helped police identify and locate the vehicle. Litolff is accused of driving the SUV at the time of the incident, which occurred in the area of 78 Lake St.
Multiple witnesses attempted to render first aid to the victim. He was transported to an area hospital by Mercy Flight.
Le Roy ambulance and Le Roy fire assisted at the scene.
