The family of an 18-year-old man killed in a hit-and-run accident earlier this year is suing a former Onondaga County DA's investigator for the teen's wrongful death.
Former investigator Peter Rauch has admitted to hitting Seth Collier March 23 and then leaving the scene of the accident. Collier died two days later after his family took him off life support. Collier's family plans to sue Rauch, seeking damages and legal costs. Onondaga County has agreed to pay Collier's family a $150,000 settlement. In the meantime, Rauch is set to be sentenced today. He faces up to six years in prison.
