Semi-Truck Driver Accused In Hit & Run Crash Killing Teen Facing Felony Charges

JAMESTOWN – The driver of a semi-truck accused in the hit and run crash that killed a Jamestown teen last week is now facing felony charges in the case. 

City of Jamestown Police say Alexis Hughan was crossing West 6th Street near Washington Street around 12:30 p.m. last Friday when she was hit by the 18-wheel car carrier.  











The driver of the truck, identified as 58-year-old Randall Rolison, allegedly fled the scene without stopping to check on the girl.    

At the time of his arrest last week, Rolison was charged with driving while ability impaired by drugs and leaving the scene of a personal injury accident. Following an additional investigation this week, police charged Rolison with felony leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident. 







“A preliminary hearing was held today in Jamestown City Court in front of Judge John LaMancuso and the court ruled that there was Reasonable Cause to believe that a crime was committed and will be held over for action of a Grand Jury,” the department said in a statement.  

Officers say their investigation is continuing and additional charges are possible pending the results of toxicology samples submitted to the NY State Police Crime Lab in Albany.
