An investigation found that the 16-year-old resident of Yonkers was driving an electric scooter west on McLean Avenue in the eastbound lane; when he was struck head-on by a cargo van traveling east in the eastbound lane; the van then fled the scene, and a witness called 911, Politopoulos said.
Over the next 36 hours, detectives worked to successfully locate the van and identify the operator; he was placed into custody without incident and the vehicle, a 2004 Chevrolet Express, was impounded as evidence, police said.
The driver is identified as Stephen Dolan, age 46, of Yonkers, and a City of Yonkers Department of Public Works employee, Politopoulos said.
Investigators believe that Dolan was consuming alcohol before the accident and was under the influence of intoxicants, he said.
The victim, identified as Christopher Jack “CJ” Hackett, died Thursday, Aug. 4, in the presence of his family, Politopoulos said.
He was a student at Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains.
Dolan was charged with leaving the scene of an accident with injury resulting in death.
He is expected to be arraigned Friday, Aug. 5, police said.
Politopoulos said additional charges may be added as the investigation continues.
The case is being prosecuted by the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office.
"The City of Yonkers and Yonkers Police Department offer their sincere condolences to the family and friends of Christopher Hackett and his school community," Politopoulos said.

Prince Harry’s older woman lover reveals odd reason she gave him the nickname ‘baby’
A REALITY star who once dated Prince Harry despite their 13-year age gap has revealed the odd reason she gave him the nickname "baby".
Divorcee Catherine Ommanney says she had a fling with the King's son when he was just 21 and she was a 34-year-old mother of two.3Catherine Ommanney has lifted the lid on her fling with Prince HarryCredit: My Story Media 3The 51-year-old gave the royal the nickname 'baby'
Catherine, now 51, told The Sun on Sunday they acted like teenagers and kissed passionately during dates.
She says she affectionately nicknamed him "baby" as he had a habit of sucking on lollipops.
Catherine says she had the “time of my life” in 2006 with the prince — who gave her the “most passionate kiss I’ve ever had”.
She is not sure if Harry was on a break from Chelsy.
Catherine, who once starred in American reality TV show The Real Housewives of DC, was separated from ex-husband Stephen when she and Harry met at trendy Art Bar in London’s Chelsea in May 2006.
She told The Sun on Sunday: “We had some mutual friends in the property business and he introduced himself.
“Harry was wearing an Australian-style hat that made me laugh so I asked him, ‘What are you doing looking like a t*** in that?’.Most read in The US SunNEW FAMILY Chris Watts' $600K murder house in Colorado finally sells four years onGIVE ME CREDIT Serena William's stepmom hits out at demands amid battle over homeHIDDEN MEANINGS?

“I don’t think he was used to people taking the Mickey and once we started talking, it was like there was no one else was in the room.”
Catherine has lifted the lid after learning that Harry, 38, was writing about his ex-girlfriends in his new memoir.
Speaking from Majorca, where she now lives, the interior designer said: “He was only 21 so a relationship was the furthest thing from my mind.
"But when everyone started leaving at around 11pm, Harry pointed to one of three Range Rovers parked outside and said, ‘Hop in with me,’ which I found very flattering.
“We were driven to Eclipse nightclub in South Kensington and whisked downstairs to the VIP area.
“A few moments later the manager came over and asked, ‘What is your favourite song?’ Harry said, ‘Gnarls Barkley, Crazy.’
"It came on a second later and I said, ‘You are so spoiled.’ Harry just laughed."

After two more dates, Harry changed his number and Catherine did not see him again until 2009, when they bumped into each other at a polo match in Barbados.
It was a year after she married her second husband, from whom she is now separated.3Catherine says she had the 'time of my life' in 2006 with the princeCredit: Solarpix
