GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – Greenville Police Department officials said a woman has been arrested following an investigation into a hit-and-run incident where a road worker was injured last month.
According to a Greenville Police Facebook post, Danzaler Mills, 33, of Greenville, was arrested and charged after a tip was made to the Crime Stoppers of Greenville hotline with hit-and-run involved in an accident with great bodily harm in the incident.
We reported earlier that the incident happened on June 16 at the intersection of Dunbar and Barns streets in Greenville last month.
Stratton Tripp, an employee of King Asphalt, was directing traffic for overnight paving when police said he was hit. He suffered several broken bones and needed shoulder surgery.
According to the Facebook post, statements provided by Mills’ passengers in her vehicle said Mills briefly stopped without providing air or leaving information to the victim before driving away from the scene, and said she was “well aware she struck the victim.”
Mills was taken to the Greenville County Detention Center where she was being held on $10,000 bond.
