Driver Arrested for Deadly Hit-and-Run in Monroe County

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Police have arrested the woman they say hit and killed a man near Stroudsburg.

Authorities believe she was driving under the influence.

Police say Denise Harraman, 55 of Stroudsburg, hit and killed James Perrotte, 27, also from Stroudsburg, as he crossed Route 611 in Hamilton Township just before 2 a.m Thursday.

Authorities say Harraman took off after the crash but only made it about four and a half miles down Route 611 before she crashed into a sign.

Emergency crews had to cut Harraman from the vehicle.

That stretch of Route 611 near Stroudsburg was closed for several hours while crews worked to clean up the mess.
