Court: Woman fled crash with body impaled in windshield

Maria Lentini

HALFMOON, N.Y. (NEWS10) – According to court documents, a woman indicted for killing a man in a hit-and-run crash, fled the scene, and drove around for more than an hour with the body impaled in her windshield.

Maria Lentini, 30, of Saratoga Springs, N.Y., is accused of hitting Patrick Duff while he was walking on Route 9 near Kinns Road in December 2015.

The documents say Lentini texted her friends and family, but never called 911. She is accused of leaving the body on the car for approximately an hour and 15 minutes.

Lentini’s sister was the first person to call 911 about the incident, not Lentini, according to the indictment.

She was charged with leaving the scene of an incident without reporting, 1st degree endangerment, and refusal to submit a breath test.
