HAMBURG, NY- Hamburg Police say they have determined with "a high degree of confidence" that Jennifer Martello was the victim of a hit-and-run accident.
The 29-year-old Martello was found on the side of Big Tree Road just after midnight Tuesday morning with serious injuries. Martello was then taken to Erie County Medical Center, where her husband says she passed away a few hours later.
Martello's husband Sam said that his wife had went for a walk because she was upset and needed time to relax, after she did not receive a recent job offer.
"My last words were, 'don't go for a walk stay home,' I took her purse from her because she was upset," Sam Martello said.
Police say the investigation is ongoing and are requesting any and all possible help from the public.
