JAMESTOWN – Family of a 15-year-old girl who was killed during a hit-and-run semi-truck crash on New Year’s Eve in Jamestown returned to the scene of the crime in protest on Tuesday.

The fatal crash killed 15-year-old Alexis “Lexi” Hughan as she was crossing West 6th Street near Washington Street. Lexi was allegedly hit by Randall Rolison’s 18-wheel car carrier.

He is charged with felony leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident and driving while impaired by drugs. A Chautauqua County Grand Jury also indicted Rolison in connection with unregistered handguns.

Despite the slew of serious charges, Rolison was able to walk free on bail. Lexi’s step-mother Jessica Martin shared her family’s frustration at the injustice, saying Lexi herself never would have stood by and let this happen.
