The Genesee County Sheriff's Office says the woman arrested in a fatal hit-and-run crash after a concert at Darien Lake was arrested for DWI about 30 minutes later.

Investigators say Jennifer Serrano of Chautauqua County hit 18-year-old Connor Lynskey of Oneida County on Sumner Road early Saturday morning.

Lynskey was walking back to his campsite at Darien Lake State Park around 12:30 a.m. after the Jason Aldean concert. Serrano allegedly struck Lynskey, causing him to become airborne and then left the scene. Investigators found his body nearly 12 hours later.

About 30 minutes after Serrano allegedly hit and killed Lynskey, deputies say she nearly struck a marked Genesee County Sheriff's vehicle. She was charged with DWI on Alleghany Road in the Town of Darien by deputies.

She was arraigned and sent to the Genesee County Jail on $1,000 bail, which she posted a few hours later.

Investigators later found Serrano at a relative's house in Amherst, along with the vehicle involved in the crash.

Serrano is facing charges of vehicular manslaughter in the second degree and leaving the scene of a personal injury incident, both class D felonies, in relation to the hit-and-run crash.
