Latham, N.Y. Motorist Turns Himself In Tragic Hit-and-Run

New York personal injury lawyer
A motorist accused of striking and killing a pedestrian during the early morning hours of Wednesday, January 8th has turned himself in to authorities. According to police, 33-year-old Brian Tromans entered police headquarters in Colonie on the night of Wednesday, January 11th, to surrender.

Police are in possession of surveillance footage of both Mr. Tromans and the victim, Rudolph Seabron, at a local bar in Colonie on the night the collision occurred. Investigators state that Mr. Seabron was returning on foot to the National Guard armory in Latham when he was hit by two vehicles on Watervliet Shaker Road.

The vehicle operated by Mr. Tromans was the first to strike Mr. Seabron. Mr. Tromans then fled the scene, and left Mr. Seabron lying in the road. Shortly afterward, another vehicle hit the victim.

Lt. Kenneth Pero of the Colonie Police Department said that Mr. Tromans was aware that he struck someone, and then left the scene. However, while in court, Mr. Tromans entered a plea of not guilty to fleeing the scene of a deadly motor vehicle accident without reporting such accident. His attorney said outside court that his client was unaware that he struck someone, and has been honest with police. He went on to say that his client has had several talks with police in which he said he did not know he hit someone.

Mr. Seabron was age 57, and a National Guard master sergeant.
