N.H. detective arrested in Bedford hit-and-run crash

BEDFORD, N.H. — A New Hampshire detective who was fired after his unmarked police vehicle was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run accident in Bedford faces felony charges of leaving the scene of an accident.

Stephen Coco, a detective sergeant who worked in the Special Investigations Unit in Manchester, turned himself in to police Tuesday, four days after two teenage boys were hit from behind and injured as they were walking along a quiet residential street at about 9:20 p.m. Friday.
