GERMAN FLATTS, N.Y. — State police say a man has turned himself in as the driver of a silver Toyota Camry that struck and killed a Syracuse University student from Albany after her car was involved in a minor accident on the Thruway.
Troopers say 21-year-old Jamie Klemczak of Albany was eastbound on Interstate 90 early Saturday when her car slid off the highway and got stuck in the median near Exit 30 in Herkimer County, 55 miles east of Syracuse.
Police say Klemczak was attempting to cross the westbound lanes when she was struck by a car whose driver didn’t stop.
Troopers say the driver didn’t know he had hit a person and turned himself in Sunday after hearing reports about the accident. His name was not released.
University officials say Klemczak was a senior in the college of Arts and Sciences.
