Police said Wednesday that they arrested the driver involved in a weekend hit-and-run with a moped on Penny Road.
Beverly McNair, 59, of Apex was arrested and charged with felony hit-and-run, according to a news release from the police department. She faces up to 41 months in jail if convicted. She’s being held at the Wake County Public Safety Center.
McNair allegedly hit a moped driven by Douglas Porter, 57, who police said sustained severe injuries.
At about 6:49 p.m. Saturday, police responded to the 10,000 block of Penny Road where they found Porter lying next to his moped. Porter was taken to WakeMed in Raleigh. Police said witnesses reported seeing McNair and her Honda sedan at the scene before police arrived.
