LIBERTY, NY — Sullivan County Sheriff Michael Schiff is asking for the public’s assistance in locating the driver and vehicle involved in a fatal hit-and-run collision on Saturday night.  Deputies were called to 2642 State Route 52 in Liberty at about 9:45 p.m.  for a report of a pedestrian struck. The location is between Frankie Lane and Hanoffee Drive.

At the scene, deputies found 60-year-old Dennis Toscano deceased on the shoulder of the highway.
