Suspect in Chautauqua County hit-and-run found nearly one year later

LAKEWOOD, N.Y. (WIVB) — Police have made an arrest in a July 2023 hit-and-run in Chautauqua County.

Last year, one day after Independence Day, Lakewood-Busti police said a woman was injured after being struck by an SUV while leaving the village’s Walmart. Police said the driver left the scene.

On Thursday, the police department announced the arrest of 37-year-old Clarence resident David Legg, who’s been charged with reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, reckless driving and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

According to police, Legg was found in Alexandria, Virginia before being extradited to Lakewood to face charges. He was taken to the Chautauqua County Jail.
