Tracking down the distribution and possession of child pornography

HASTINGS — Michel M. Palmowski II, 26, of Hastings, was arrested Thursday morning by Oswego County Sheriff’s Department in connection with an alleged eight-month-old collision that police say resulted in the death of a 23-year-old Baldwinsville woman.

Police accuse Mr. Palmowski of leaving the scene Sept. 26, 2019 after hitting a tree on Center Street in the town of Constantia. Occupant Courtney Riddel was seriously injured in the collision and later died as a result of her injuries, according to police.

Mr. Palmowski was charged with vehicular manslaughter, first degree, a class C felony; leaving the scene of a fatal accident without reporting, a class D felony; and two separate counts of aggravated unlicensed operator, first degree, a class E felony.

He was arraigned on all charges in Oswego County CAP Court, released on his own recognizance and is set to appear in the Town of Constantia Court on July 6.
