April 5, 2019 – A Delaware County Grand Jury has returned a three-count indictment against 24-year-old Devon T. Tosco, of Delaware.
Charges come after witnesses flagged down police who were patrolling the downtown area on the evening of March 16, 2019.
“On scene, law enforcement were alerted to a seriously injured man in the area of West William and Sandusky Streets,” said Acting Prosecutor Christopher Betts. “Witnesses told police the man had been walking in the crosswalk when he was struck by a dark-colored vehicle that was travelling at a high rate of speed.”
The victim was taken to Grant Medical Center with significant injuries, including broken legs and a broken arm. The vehicle described by witnesses fled the scene.
“Due to the impact of the crash, debris from the front passenger side of the car was recovered from the roadway,” Betts said. “That debris was useful in later determining that the vehicle involved was a 1995 Nissan Maxima, dark green in color.”
Tosco is charged with vehicular assault – a fourth-degree felony, failing to stop after accident on public roads or highways – a fifth-degree felony, and tampering with evidence – a third-degree felony.
An arraignment date is not yet set.
