A Greenville man has turned himself in to police for a hit and run Sunday where a woman was pinned between two vehicles.
Police issued the arrest warrant Tuesday morning for 68-year-old white male David Williams, who injured a woman after pinning her between two vehicles and fled the scene.
At 8:10 p.m. Sunday, May 23, Chiconna Bowman, 44, said she was outside her place of business, Cee Bee’s Cafe & Grill on Walnut Street, speaking to a customer who was inside her vehicle when a Chevy SUV being driven by Williams drove toward them.
“He saw her truck there and he saw me standing there but he continued to move forward. By this time, I’m waving for him to go around because there were no oncoming cars coming,” Bowman said.
Bowman said she continued to try to tell Williams to drive around her.
“Instead of going around, he inches closer like he’s going to run into the back of her truck. At this time, I’m looking at him like ‘Seriously!,’” Bowman said. “So one more time I try to wave him around. He looks at me, puts his truck in reverse to back up and then he puts it in drive and mashes the gas, running into me, pinning me between both vehicles and driving off as if nothing happened.”
Emergency medical personnel responded to the scene and transported Bowman to Delta Health-The Medical Center, where she was treated and later released, according to Assistant Greenville Police Chief Michael Merchant.
Bowman said her injuries included superficial bruising, strain of right shoulder, contusion of rib on right side, strain of lumbar region, contusion of right thigh, contusion of right lower leg, contusion of right ankle and post traumatic muscle contracture.
Williams turned himself in to the Greenville Police Department on Tuesday and was arrested without incident, Merchant said. He has been charged with aggravated assault.
As of Tuesday afternoon, he remained in police custody and a bond had not yet been set.
