Last April, a 24-year-old woman decided to drink and drive. After hitting a pedestrian, she then chose to leave the scene of the accident. When she was later apprehended, the woman chose to lie about the crash.
On April 10, 2016, the woman crashed her vehicle into the east side of a concrete barrier, according to police. She then hit a 21-year-old young man who was hiking along the shoulder of Interstate 229 when he was struck and killed by a Ford Fusion. As the woman continued driving, she crashed into the west side of the concrete barrier, at which time the pedestrian was thrown from the vehicle and hurled over the wall. The driver then fled the scene on foot. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.
When the woman was found a short time later, she told police that she had been a passenger in the car and an unknown male had been driving. However, investigators found only the driver’s airbag deployed, the woman’s blood was found there, and she had the car keys. Yet, the woman maintained her lies throughout the investigation, according to reports.
