JAMESTOWN, N.Y. (WKBW) — A Jamestown woman is facing several charges after police say she hit a pedestrian with her car and drove away.
Jamestown Police say 52-year-old Tammy Sawyer turned herself in and has been charged with Leaving the Scene of a Personal Injury Accident, a felony, Failing to Yield to a Pedestrian, and Speed Not Reasonable and Prudent.
Police asked for assistance from the public on Monday after a Toyota Rav 4 was caught on camera hitting a pedestrian who was using the crosswalk in front of UPMC Chautauqua the evening of April 16th.
The victim sustained a serious leg injury.
Investigators were able to recover a piece of the suspect's vehicle, which would be missing from the driver's side front bumper.
Police say they got a tip about the suspected car Tuesday afternoon and impounded it for processing. Sawyer turned herself in the next day. As of Wednesday evening, Sawyer was locked up and awaiting arraignment.
