JAMES CITY COUNTY — A 45-year-old Surry woman has been arrested and charged with multiple offenses after a pedestrian was struck in a hit-and-run incident Thursday in James City County.

According to officials, the James City County Police and Fire Departments responded to a call at the 7-Eleven at 1800 Jamestown Road in Williamsburg at approximately 11:10 p.m. on Dec. 28.

Officers began an investigation as medics treated the victim, who sustained serious injuries after being struck by a vehicle that had left the scene, police said.

Witness accounts and surveillance footage revealed the incident began as a verbal altercation between the victim and a woman in the 7-Eleven parking lot. The woman, identified as Danita Martin, got into a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, backed into and ran over the victim, and fled the scene. The victim and Martin knew each other and arrived at the convenience store together, according to police.

While the victim was still being treated for their injuries, within twenty minutes of the incident police had located the Silverado at the Jamestown Settlement parking lot. A DUI investigation was conducted with Martin, the sole occupant of the vehicle, leading to her arrest and subsequent charges, including Driving Under the Influence, Maiming due to DUI, and Felony Hit-and-Run Resulting in Injury, police said.

Martin was taken to Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail and denied bond. The vehicle involved in the incident was impounded.

The victim sustained significant injuries and was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at the Riverside Regional Hospital in Newport News.

The investigation is active, and additional charges may be brought forward at a later date, police said.
