Police Following 'Plenty of Leads' in Lowenstein's Hit-and-Run
Allison Lowenstein, 21, of Westfield, remains in critical condition.
State Park Police Detective Sgt. Steven Huff said Monday that the investigation into the hit-and-run accident that left Allison Lowenstein, 21, of Westfield, in critical condition Tuesday, July 17 is "still very active."
The Westfield High School graduate was jogging down Seven Lakes Drive west of the intersection of Lake Welch Drive in Harriman State Park between 5 and 5:20 p.m. Tuesday when she was hit by a driver who left the scene.
Lowenstein was taken to Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, where she remains in critical condition as of Monday, according to Huff. Initially, police did not have a description of the driver or the vehicle.
"There's nothing solid just yet but we're still very busy following up on leads; we have plenty of leads," Huff said. "It can take several weeks because we are tracking someone down as opposed to (investigating) someone who was there. We are working with various media outlets and receiving a lot of information."
A cross country runner, Lowenstein had been working as a counselor at Camp Homeward Bound, a resident camp designed for homeless children living in New York City's homeless shelters, in Bear Mountain, NY.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the NYS Crime Stoppers hot line at 1-866-313-8477 (TIPS) or New York State Park Police at 845-786-2781.
