GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Police say a North Carolina woman is accused of driving away after her car hit and injured a pedestrian last fall. The victim died this week.

News outlets report Nyquasia Shybreal Rowell, 22, of High Point was driving south on North Spring Street in Greensboro in the center travel lane early on Oct. 16 when she entered an intersection at Friendly Avenue on a green light, Greensboro police said.

Scarlett Ann Hill, 28, of Greensboro was crossing Spring Street within a crosswalk but against the pedestrian signal when Rowell’s car hit her and left the scene, police said. Hill died on Sunday.

Rowell is charged with felony hit-and-run, driving while license revoked and vehicle regulatory violations.
