Livingston County Sheriff's Deputies have identified a driver and vehicle they say was involved in Saturday's deadly hit and run in Geneseo.  However, deputies say that person is not in custody.

Investigators say 54-year-old Valeri Belioutsa, a commercial tractor trailer driver from Canada, hit and killed Nicholas Iannarelli. The 24-year-old man from East Amherst was struck early Saturday morning while walking along Route 63 near Court Street.  Deputies say he was wearing dark clothing at the time.

Investigators say the company Belioutsa works for in Concord, Ontario, is cooperating.

Deputies say the investigation is still active and is being treated as a criminal investigation.  So far no one has been charged.
