An Anderson woman was arrested recently after confessing to a deadly hit-and-run accident. Here are the details of the case, according to a report from WTHR.
* The woman was leaving a bar late at night when she hit a woman that she says was walking in the roadway. Hers was the first of two vehicles to hit the victim. The second vehicle stopped.
* The woman stated that she never called 911 after the crash, even though she saw that the 26-year-old victim she hit needed help, in part because she had a false registration.
* The victim reportedly was leaving one friend’s home and heading to another when she was struck.
* The woman turned herself in to police after the victim’s mother pleaded publicly for information about the accident.
* According to the woman’s confession, the victim was alive after the accident, had gotten up, and was staggering in the roadway. Police think she probably would have survived if the woman had stopped and sought help.
* After hitting the victim, the woman confessed, she went home and told her boyfriend about the accident. The two were reportedly looking to have the damage to her car repaired so they could hide the evidence of the crash.
* The woman faces a level 5 felony charge of leaving the scene following a crash.
