Local News

ELMIRA, N.Y. (WETM) – Elmira Police confirmed that no one was injured in Wednesday’s pedestrian hit-and-run accident at Weis Market on Main Street.

Elmira Police responded to the accident around 1 p.m. on January 12. An investigation determined that a Toyota sedan backed out of a parking spot and hit a woman walking behind the car. The driver of the car didn’t stop, but police later located them.

The woman was taken to a local hospital but did not have any injuries. Witnesses told police that the driver of the Toyota probably didn’t notice the accident “due to very light nature of the impact”.

The driver was ticketed for unsafe backing, and the investigation is closed. However, Elmira Police are still asking any witnesses to contact the EPD at (607) 737-5626, or the tip line at (607) 271-HALT.
