ROTTERDAM, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Police have identified the victim in a fatal hit-and-run as 47-year-old Inshan Ali, of Schenectady.
But instead of getting into his car, which was parked outside, police said Ali left on foot. It also doesn’t appear that he was headed north in the direction of Schenectady where he lived. Rather he walked south on Hamburg Street.
Ali’s loved ones tell NEWS10 that Ali had moved to Schenectady from Guyana, and he was two weeks away from becoming a U.S. citizen. He is survived by two young children.
Rotterdam police said Ali had been walking in the street when a driver heading northbound on Hamburg Street struck him. Residents told police they believe the vehicle was a white Honda CRV or Honda Pilot.
Police are now asking for the public’s assistance in solving the case.
If you see a vehicle matching this description, you are asked to give them a call.
