Man accused of hitting student with vehicle at Greensboro bus stop in custody
GREENSBORO, N.C. — The driver accused of hitting a high school student and fleeing the scene is in custody, according to Public Information Officer Susan Danielsen with Greensboro police.
Marquise Treyvon Williams, 21, of Greensboro, turned himself in at the Greensboro Jail Central on Sycamore Street shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday.
His voluntary surrender follows ongoing conversations between him and Greensboro detectives who were able to connect Williams to the event after a brief investigation that included a tip to Crime Stoppers, Danielsen said.
The hit and run happened just before 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 5 as students were waiting to board a school bus near Creek Ridge Road and Teague Street.
The bus, serving Smith High School, stopped to allow the three waiting students to board. Witnesses report that car Williams was driving drove up on the sidewalk to avoid hitting two cars that had stopped for the bus. Williams’ car brushed up against one of the students who received a minor injury to one of his legs. He was treated at a local hospital and released that morning.
Williams is charged with felony counts of passing a stopped school bus and striking a person, hit-and-run and possession of a stolen auto. He is also charged with driving while license is revoked, which is a misdemeanor.
He is being held on a $5,000 bond.
