MOREAU — The Glens Falls man who was struck by a car last week in Moreau died on Monday from his injuries.

Patrick W. Smith Jr., 36, was walking on Route 9 in the area of Spiers Falls Road at about 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 8, when he was hit by 71-year-old Linda L. Nevins, of South Glens Falls.

Smith was coming from a nearby store when the crash happened, according to Saratoga County Sheriff’s Capt. Jeff Brown.

Police said Nevins left the scene. She was located early last Thursday morning at her residence and charged with felony leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
