Emergency worker surrenders in accident


NORTHPORT, N.Y. -- An emergency medical technician responding to a fatal hit-and-run accident told police at the scene he might have struck the victim the night before.

Brian Leddy, a captain with the Eatons Neck volunteer fire department on Long Island, was arrested Friday after both he and officers noticed that debris in the road matched his 2003 Dodge truck, police said.

The victim, identified as Thomas Cote, 60, was found at the end of his driveway. Police said Cote was apparently hit while getting mail from his mailbox.

Leddy approached officers at the scene and told them that he suspected he might have hit something or someone while driving home Thursday night. He said he told his wife about his suspicions and then searched the neighborhood to no avail.

Leddy was arraigned on charges of leaving the scene of a fatal accident. A judge set bail at $5,000. He is scheduled to return to court Wednesday.
