The Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department have just released that they have arrested a driver who recklessly ran over two citizens, and then fled from the scene Friday night.
The Police released the location of the accident at the 6100 block of Reagan Drive, just a little after 10:30 p.m. They were called for a reported ” hit-and-run,” where the two victims were left with serious injuries.
According to the police report, officers say that a couple was crossing the street when they were struck by a black 2008 Chevrolet Impala, driven by a 45-year-old Charlotte resident. The man ran over the two people and then simply left the injured people lying in a pool of blood and pain.
The 23-year old man and the 30-year-old woman were seriously injured; the man now being placed under “stable conditions,” and the woman still being in a critical stage.
Two days later, the CMPD was able to locate the defendant after being flagged down by a concerned local citizen.
He was easy to find, as the vehicle, he was driving was missing a side mirror and and serious front end damage from where he rammed into the couple.
The car was impounded and the defendant was arrested after questioning. He is subsequently charged with two counts of “felony Hit and Run”, as well as a “driving while license revoked.”
