ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Oneida County Sheriff's Office, along with the Camden Police Department, have arrested a Camden woman for her involvement in a hit and run motor vehicle accident on Route 69 in the City of Rome on Monday, June 6.

Deputies say Michael Beasock, 20, of Rome, was walking along Rome-Taberg Road around 11:30 p.m. Monday night when he was struck by a vehicle.

Beasock was treated for severe but non-life threatening injuries at St. Elizabeth Medical Center. The driver that struck Beasock took off, leading to an investigation by police to locate the suspect vehicle and driver.

According to authorities, Sandra L. Chamberlain, 40, of Camden, was arrested after sheriff's deputies received information of a possible suspect vehicle in Camden. That information was relayed to Chief Richard Paul of the Camden Police Department and he assisted in the investigation.

Chief Paul was able to determine that Chamberlain had been driving the vehicle as well as locate the vehicle Chamberlain was suspected of driving, which had damage consistent with debris recovered at the scene.

The vehicle has since been impounded by the sheriff's office for processing.

Chamberlain was arrested for leaving the scene of a serious personal injury motor vehicle accident, a class E felony. She was issued an appearance ticket returnable to the City of Rome Court at a later date. Authorities said the investigation is continuing.

Beasock is in fair condition at St. Elizabeth Medical Center as of Friday afternoon.
