Man charged in fatal Schenectady hit-and-run

Schenectady police say a tip led them to a man with 10 driver's license suspensions who is believed to be responsible for a hit-and-run accident Wednesday night that killed a city woman.

Police said Anthony J. Gallo, 34, no address available, drove through a red light at the intersection of Erie Boulevard and State Street about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, hitting Casandra A. Boone, 19, of 1525 Avenue B. Boone died later in the evening after emergency surgery at Albany Medical Center.

Police said Boone was struck by a white Dodge pickup truck that was headed toward Glenville. Officers following up on the tip located the vehicle and then the driver, police said. Police said the vehicle was owned by Gallo's father and registered to an unidentified woman.

Gallo is charged with leaving the scene of a fatal auto accident, a felony, second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor, and a trio of vehicle and traffic infractions -- passing a steady red light, imprudent speed and failure to exercise due care. Police said additional charges are possible as investigators await the results of toxicology tests.
