Kristopher Martinez-Roman, pictured here in a previous mugshot, has been identified as the driver in a fatal Lancaster hit-and-run that killed one J. P. McCaskey High School student while seriously injuring another.
Lancaster Police say Martinez-Roman, 23, is the third person involved in Thursday’s crash that occurred near the intersection N. Franklin St., & E. King St., in Lancaster, PA.
Previously, police had thought the two men identified by surveillance videos were the only people in a silver Acura MDX that struck a car on East King and Franklin Streets Thursday afternoon.
Through their investigation, police identified Martinez-Roman as the driver of the vehicle. The two other men, pictured below, were passengers in the vehicle. source
Martinez-Roman fled the accident scene in a different direction than the two passengers, and police are seeking information on his whereabouts.
When apprehended, he is facing multiple felony counts of accidents involving death and injury, among other charges.
17-year-old Isaia Candelario, a junior at McCaskey High School, was pronounced dead at the scene while an unidentified teen is still listed in critical condition in an area hospital.
Anyone with information on this incident is urged to contact police at 911.
