A Henderson woman is facing a Class D Felony charge of Leaving the Scene of An Accident With Serious Physical Injury after an incident that occurred on Tuesday night.
The Henderson Police Department says the incident started around 6:50 p.m. on Tuesday when officers responded to the area of Highway 41 for an accident with injuries.
Officers later located 47-year-old Kimberly Derrington in the 9200 block of Martin Martin Road.
HPD says Derrington told officers that she had just left work on Marywood Drive and was driving south on US 41 when a pedestrian ran out in front of her.
According to HPD, Derrington also told officers that she knew she had hit a pedestrian but that she kept driving anyway. HPD says Derrington said she later drove home and called 911 over an hour after the incident happened.
HPD says the pedestrian who was hit by the vehicle was taken to the hospital with what appeared to be a serious physical injury.
Derrington remains in the Henderson County Jail where she's charged with Leaving the Scene of An Accident With Serious Physical Injury, a Class D Felony.
