HARPERS FERRY WOMAN DEAD FOLLOWING HIT AND RUN

A Harpers Ferry woman died last week as a result of a hit-and-run. 66 year old Genevieve Eaton was killed when a car hit her as she was riding her bicycle on U.S. Route 220 near the Hester Bridge. The driver of that vehicle… 40 year old Adam Colasessano of Moorefield, fled the scene… went across the bridge and then hit a house. He then took off again, but was finally pulled over when he was spotted by West Virginia State Police. Colasessano was taken into custody and is now charged with driving under the influence causing death and hit-and-run causing death. Additional charges are pending. He is being held at the Potomac Highlands Regional Jail.
