REDDING (August 23, 2016)- According to KRCRTV News, a man was struck and injured by a drunk driver Monday evening as he pumped gas at a gas station located off of Knighton Road.
Police officials were notified of the incident at 11:30 p.m. after a woman identified as Hanna Magee, 37, had been arguing with a gas station attendant before getting into her vehicle and crashing into another vehicle.
A man became pinned by his vehicle against a gas pump and was eventually freed by the help of several Good Samaritans.
Magee attempted to flee the scene before hitting a second man injuring his leg.
Both men were transported to the hospital for treatment of their injuries.
Police officials reported that Magee tried a second time to flee the scene but was unsuccessful in doing so as her vehicle was too badly damaged.
Once Magee realized her vehicle was undrivable, she got out of the car with her son and began running away from the scene on foot before being found a short while later after police officials issued a full-fledged search with a helicopter patrolling from up above.
Magee was arrested and taken to Shasta County Jail. She faces several charges including driving under the influence and hit-and-run.
