Information wanted on fatal hit and run  

CENTEREACH - Suffolk County Crime Stoppers and Suffolk County Police are seeking the public’s help to identify and locate the driver of the vehicle involved in a fatal hit-and-run with a pedestrian in Centereach.

At approximately 12:45 a.m. on December 21, Michael Van Hulse, 29, of Centereach, was walking eastbound on Park Street, west of Rustic Road, when an unknown type of vehicle struck him, knocking him to the ground. Van Hulse suffered life-threatening injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
