ARREST MADE IN FATAL HIT AND RUN ACCIDENT THAT HAPPENED ON JUNE 2, 2015 ON SOUTH ROAD
Release Date: April 28, 2016

Credit to our Greenburgh Police Department for their excellent detective skills!  It’s reassuring to know that our police don’t give up and will follow every lead possible when hit and runs occur or when crimes happen.  We’re lucky to have a dedicated and outstanding police department serving our community!
     On Tuesday June 9, 2015 during the early morning hours Darryl Chung, age 23 and a resident of South Road was walking along South Road believed to be heading home when he was struck by a vehicle and killed. The vehicle fled leaving Chung lying on the side of the roadway where he was later discovered by a passing motorist who called 911 at about 6:00 A.M. An SUV type of vehicle was captured on a video surveillance camera at approximately 1:45 A.M. on the morning of June 9, 2015 traveling on South Road in the vicinity of Polk Place.
      
     On Wednesday April 27, 2016 Greenburgh Detectives interviewed and subsequently charged Theodore Aubrey Gumbs, age 51 of 1 Wyndover Woods Lane White Plains NY 10603 with Leaving the Scene of an Accident Resulting in a Death, Section 600 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law a Class D Felony. The arrest stems directly from investigative leads developed by the Detectives in locating the 2015 Honda Pilot that Gumbs was driving the night he struck Chung. Detectives working in conjunction with the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office obtained a search warrant for the Pilot which will be transported to the Westchester County Department of Laboratories for forensic analysis.
 
     Gumbs was held overnight at Greenburgh Police Headquarters awaiting arraignment in the Greenburgh Town Court at 2:00 PM on Thursday April 28, 2016.
