Hit-and-run trial winds down
ALBANY -- Closing statements wrapped up on Tuesday 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.
On Monday, Cruz testified in his own defense, claiming he was not driving on the night in question.
Cruz is also charged with criminally negligent homicide, vehicular manslaughter and a number of other crimes.
