The Southold Town P.D. is Searching for the Vehicles Involved in a Fatal Hit-and-Run Crash in Laurel Earlier This Year

Southold, NY - March 27, 2014 - Suffolk County Crime Stoppers and the Southold Town Police Department are seeking the public’s help to identify and locate the drivers of the vehicles involved in a hit-and-run crash that killed a man in Laurel earlier this year.

James Callaghan, 45, of Jamesport was killed on January 16, 2014, during the pre-daylight hours while jogging in dense fog conditions along Route 25.  While the cause of the crash is still under investigation, it appears that Callaghan was struck by two westbound vehicles and that he may have been lying in the roadway when struck.

Investigations revealed the possibility that Callaghan may have been struck by a third vehicle as blue metallic and clear coat finish particles were removed Callaghan’s clothing.  The paint particles, both consistent with vehicular paint, are not associated with two known vehicles in this case.  Investigators believe the blue metallic-colored vehicle, whose driver left the scene, struck Callaghan before the two known westbound vehicles or that he suffered some type of medical condition that caused him to be on the roadway when he was struck. 

Suffolk County Crime Stoppers offers a cash reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS, or call the Southold Town Police Department detectives at (631) 765-2600.All calls will be kept confidential.
