Teenager charged with hit and run
LIBERTY - An 18-year-old woman was charged Wednesday with hit and run after she reportedly ran her vehicle into another one on Wallace Wilkinson Boulevard, police said.
Eva Palmer of 6793 Dry Creek Road, Elkhorn, drove her car out of the Royal Inn Motel parking lot and into the path of a vehicle driven by Lizzie Singleton, 145 Singleton Drive, Liberty, according to Police Chief Ron Whited. The Singleton vehicle was headed north on the boulevard. Palmer attempted to cross the southbound lane into the northbound lane and hit the side of the Singleton auto, Whited said.
Palmer left the scene. Witnesses told police that Palmer drove toward Yosemite on Ky. 70 East. The 1991 Toyota involved in the crash was found later by Deputy Sheriff Chad Weddle. It was parked behind a service station in Yosemite.
