TOWN OF DARIEN — The woman accused of striking and killing a Holland Patent teen with her car outside the Darien Lake amusement park has been indicted by a grand jury in Genesee County.

Jennifer L. Serrano, 48, of Irving, Chautauqua County, was indicted Sept. 11 on one count each of second-degree vehicular manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident, driving while intoxicated and second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, court officials said.

Serrano pleaded not guilty before Judge Charles Zambito on Sept. 12 and her case was adjourned for motion argument to Nov. 15.

Genesee County Sheriff’s deputies said 18-year-old Connor Lynskey, of Cady Road, Hinckley, was walking westbound with a group of friends on the south shoulder of Sumner Road at about 12:30 a.m. Aug. 11, having just come from a concert at Darien Lake.

Deputies said Lynskey became separated from his group and was struck by a motor vehicle driven by Serrano, who then fled the scene.

Lynskey’s body was found on the side of the road the following morning.
