An Oklahoma State University student was arrested following a hit-and-run collision in Stillwater on February 4th. According to the Stillwater News Press, 35-year-old Leena Singh was charged with leaving the scene of a personal injury accident.
The Stillwater Police Department reported the accident occurred on West Maple Avenue and South Duck Street. When officers responded to the collision, they found one SUV rolled over with two occupants inside. The officers stated the overturned vehicle was hit and spun upon impact, with the right rear tire striking the curb and breaking off, causing the vehicle to travel south through the sidewalk and grass.
The two crash victims suffered several contusions, a black eye, and a laceration.
Witnesses at the scene recounted the accident, stating a female driver in a red car hit the SUV and then continued driving westbound, while another said the red vehicle stopped for a moment and then left. The red car was later found by police in a parking lot near Boone Pickens Stadium and the driver identified as Singh.
Singh was arrested and later released on bond. She was uninjured in the collision.
