An East Patchogue man has been arrested for allegedly killing a 37-year-old Medford man in a hit-and-run crash in Coram last week, Suffolk County police said.

Abdelgheni Dakyouk was charged with leaving the scene of an incident without reporting involving a fatality.

Vehicular Crime Unit detectives said the 48-year-old suspect was driving northbound on Route 112 when he struck the victim shortly before 6 a.m. Saturday, March 14.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. He has been tentatively identified, but has not yet been positively identified, police said.

Dakyouk will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Central Islip.
