WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — An accident this morning in Wilmington left one man startled and not knowing who hit him. It all happened on the corner of Carolina Beach Road and St. Andrew’s Drive.
A woman at the scene told WWAY it started when she got in a fight with her boyfriend who then drove away and ran the stop sign at St. Andrew’s, T-boning another car. The man then got out of his car and ran away.
“Right at Echo Farms East, St. Andrews Drive, I saw a vehicle that kept coming out running a stop sign,” said Ernest Webb, who’s car was hit. “I tried to swerve and avoid him, but he hit me in the back quarter panel of my car. I spun around maybe about three times and landed on the side of the road here. After I got my composure I took a look, and I saw a guy running down St. Andrew’s Drive.”
Police later tracked down and arrested Calron Michael Williams. He’s charged with assault on a female, hit and run and failing to stop for a stop sign. Williams is out of jail on $1,500 bond.
