On March 13, at approximately 4:25 p.m., members of the Pittsford First Response, Regional Ambulance Service, and the Vermont State Police responded to Stevens Road in Pittsford for a report of a motor vehicle crash involving a pedestrian. Investigation at the scene found that Thomas Conte, 27, had been riding in his girlfriend's minivan when they began to argue. During the dispute Conte got out of the van, and began to walk on Stevens Road. While Conte was walking, his girlfriend, Cassandra Keyes, 22, of Sudbury drove behind him in the van, and accelerated rapidly and onto the shoulder of the roadway where Conte was walking. Keyes's van hit Conte. The impact, according to a motorist eyewitness caused Conte's body to flip backwards and land in a snow bank. Conte had a laceration to his head and a possible injury to an ankle. After the impact, Keyes did not stop; she fled the scene. Cassandra was later located at her residence where fresh impact damage to her van was found. Cassandra admitted that she had struck Conte with her van. Cassandra explained that she did not stop or remain at the scene because she does not have a license. Keyes was later lodged at the Marble Valley Correctional Center.
