Woman Arrested 2 Years After Fatal Saugus Hit & Run

SAUGUS (CBS) – Two years after an 81-year-old man was hit and killed in Saugus, police say they have caught the driver.

Steffany Barbanti was charged Monday in the death of Christo Agganis.

Agganis was hit and killed on Central Street in Saugus on his way to his favorite restaurant.

Acting on a tip, police say a friend told officers Barbanti was texting when she hit Agganis.

Barbanti’s lawyer insists his client is innocent.

Forensic testing on glass fragments found on Barbanti’s dashboard is not yet complete.
