Jury selection begins in hit and run murder case

SCHENECTADY -- Jury selection began on Monday in the case of a Schenectady man charged with murder in a hit and run crash.

Police arrested Pablo Cruz, 39, in November 2012. Authorities maintain he ignored an officer who was trying to pull him over, and minutes later, hit a man riding a bicycle and kept driving. All the while, authorities say the man was caught on Cruz's pickup truck. The high-speed chase eventually ended in Rotterdam.

Cruz is also charged with criminally negligent homicide, vehicular manslaughter and a number of other crimes.
