Woman arrested for June hit-and-run that killed bicyclist in Cincy


A woman has been charged for a hit-and-run that killed one bicyclist earlier this year in Cincinnatus.

On June 15, four people were biking along State Route 26 when a vehicle struck two of them and did not stop.

Kitt Warren, 67, of DeRuyter, was killed in the crash. John C. Rutan, 67, of McGraw suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

Investigators later determined the driver to be 36-year-old Amber M. Suprunchik, of Dolgville, NY.

Her vehicle was ultimately located that same night by a Cortland County Sheriff’s Deputy.

Police say Suprunchik was not impaired at the time, but did tamper with her vehicle after the collision.

Among her charges:

  • Tampering with Physical Evidence (F)
  • Leaving the Scene of a Fatal Accident (F)
  • Leaving the Scene of an Injury Accident (M)
  • Aggravated Unlicensed Operation in the second degree (M)

She responded to the SP Homer barracks on Friday (Oct. 8), then was brought to Cortland County Central Arraignment and Processing.
