Two Teenagers Were Struck by an Officer in a Hit-and-Run Accident

The Manchester police detective who was fired after police learned that a vehicle assigned to him was involved in a Bedford hit-and-run accident has been arrested.

Stephen Coco, a detective sergeant who was working in the Special Investigations Unit, turned himself in to police on Tuesday and was charged with two felony counts of conduct after an accident.

Authorities believe Coco was driving the vehicle, which was assigned to him by Manchester police, that hit two teenagers in Bedford Friday at 9:20 p.m. Coco was off duty at the time.

Police in Bedford said the teenagers — 17-year-old Noah Hickman and 18-year-old Dean Drukker — were injured when they were walking on Harrod Lane.

“I’m doing better than Friday, obviously, I can’t really use my left arm but my scratches are healing, my head feels a little better,” Drukker said.

Drukker said he doesn’t remember much before the accident. He remembers walking with his friend and moving to the side of the road as lights approached. The next thing he remembers was waking up in the hospital.

His mother said she’s thankful for Hickman, who went to get help after the crash.

“He’s our hero and we’ll love him forever,” she said.

Hickman had a broken elbow.
