Durham Women Struck by Hit-and-Run Driver

A Durham woman standing on the shoulder of the Durham Freeway near Briggs Avenue was struck by a car that swerved onto the shoulder then drove off on April 12, reports the News Observer.

Zaida Juarez, 26, of Durham, was a passenger in a two-car crash that occurred about 7:30 a.m. in the southbound lanes of the freeway. She stepped out of the car after the crash and was hit while standing on the shoulder. She was taken to the hospital to have her injuries treated. Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said the injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

Juarez was hit by a white Camry, which swerved onto the shoulder to avoid hitting cars that had slowed in front of her.

The driver of the Camry, Aurelia Rochelle Mangum, 31, of Durham turned herself in to police in the afternoon. She was charged with felony-hit-and-run, careless and reckless driving and failure to move over for emergency equipment.
