A woman from Morrisville accused of hitting and causing personal injuries to a bicyclist in Cary and fleeing the scene on September 4 and fleeing the scene had her driver’s license revoked the day before the accident on a separate DWI case, according to court documents.
The driver, 26-year-old Kristen Marie Snipes, was apprehended by police in South Carolina the day following the collision, in which she struck Gustavo Antonio Angalo as he was riding his bike along Chapel Hill Road.
Police say Snipes was westbound in a Nissan Altima on Chapel Hill Road near North Academy Street when she hit Angalo from behind at around 9:45 p.m. Authorities say other motorists witnessed the accident in their rear-view mirrors and stopped to help after seeing Snipes flee the scene. Angalo underwent treatment at WakeMed in Raleigh.
Authorities say Snipes was transported from South Carolina to the Wake County jail, where she was booked on September 9.
Snipes faces charges of felony hit-and run and driving on a revoked license, according to arrest warrants filed with the Wake County Magistrate’s Office.
Two days prior to the accident, Snipes was arrested on charges of DWI and having unsealed wine or liquor in the passenger area of a vehicle. Her license was revoked the next day.
