Police locate vehicle in fatal hit & run

Surveillance Video Shows Hit And Run Fatal

BUFFALO, NY--  Buffalo Police have located the vehicle wanted in connection to a fatal hit and run last week.

Police said the white Lincoln MKX SUV was found late Thursday about a mile from the accident scene. They didn't give an exact location but said the vehicle was not found at the address of the registered owner.  Police didn't say who owns the vehicle.  

The vehicle was taken to the police garage where detectives conducted forensic analysis as part of their investigation.

Police also say they have two persons of interest in the case.

On May 26, Arthur Redrick was heading to M-N Mini-mart near the corner of Bailey and Lang Avenues in Buffalo when he was struck and killed.

A security camera at the store captured the fatal crash. The store's owner shared the video with 2 On-Your-Side.

The video shows Redrick at the corner of Lang and Bailey, then starting to make his way across the street. About midway, Redrick appears to look north down Bailey and then he starts to run to the other side of the street. Then, a white vehicle appears in the camera's field of view. Redrick is hit and then goes airborne. Both he and the vehicle quickly pass through the frame and out of sight from the camera.

Lt. Jeffrey Rinaldo said Buffalo Police worked with Amherst Police and the Erie County Sheriff's office to narrow down the list of possible vehicles.

He said the vehicle involved had not been reported stolen.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call or text the Buffalo Police confidential tip line at (716) 847-2255.
