College Tennis Player Killed in Hit-and-Run

shutterstock_546509689 
A student at Binghamton University was killed in a hit-and-run accident on the morning of Saturday, December 3rd. Stefani Lineva, age 20, of Queens, was struck by a car in which Aizaz Siddiqui, age 26, was behind the wheel. He ran over her with his car prior to 2:00 a.m., when her body was discovered lying across a concrete median in the middle of Route 434 in Binghamton.
Ms. Lineva was transported to the hospital, where she was declared dead. Mr. Siddiqui was charged with fleeing the scene of a personal injury accident that resulted in a fatality.
A press conference was held in which police said that Ms. Lineva’s injuries were in keeping with being hit by a vehicle, and that the accident was deemed a hit-and-run. They began to focus on Mr. Siddiqui on the basis of a tip they received. They do not believe that a conspiracy theory was behind the incident. During his arraignment, Mr. Siddiqui pleaded not guilty, and was remanded with bail.
Police said there was nothing to suggest that he was intoxicated or that he purposely hit Ms. Lineva. They also said that Mr. Siddiqui was not driving alone at the time. However, they do not know where he was going at the time of the hit-and-run. The victim seemed to be inebriated at the time of the accident.
Ms. Lineva was a graduate of Forest Hills High School, and was a member of the tennis team at Binghamton University.
