Nesconset Driver Pleads Not Guilty to Deadly Hit-and-run
A man pleaded not guilty Thursday at Suffolk County court to allegations that he was the driver in a hit-and-run crash that killed a 23-year-old pedestrian in Hauppauge last fall.
Craig Williams was indicted last month on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident with injuries, a felony. Judge Stephen Braslow set his bail at $25,000.
Newsday reported that prosecutors appointed Garden City-based attorney Stephen Scaring as a special prosecutor in the case because Williams’ father is an investigator with the Suffolk County district attorney’s office.
Both the suspect and the victim, 23-year-old Thomas Wik, are from Nesconset.
Police have said the deadly crash occurred on Route 347 in the early morning hours of Saturday, Sept. 29.
Williams is due back in court March 22. He faces up to four years in prison, if convicted.
