DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — A driver involved in a hit-and-run south of Winston-Salem was arrested Monday, according to highway patrol.
Troopers say Jessica Elizabeth Miller, 24, of Winston-Salem, was arrested and charged with felony hit-and-run, failure to reduce speed to avoid accident and driving while license revoked.
The incident happened on Gumtree Road in the town of Gumtree early Sunday evening.
Friends tell FOX8 the cyclist hit is Josh Ramsey.
Rodney Simpson, his friend, said he was about to finish a bike ride when he was hit.
“[A] two-hour ride, on his way home, about to see his wife and he was denied that by somebody carelessly, not paying attention, and chose to run over him. And it was a bad decision, and a poor choice, that turn into a crime the minute they chose to leave the scene of the accident,” Simpson said.
Ramsey was reportedly hit and thrown from his bike as he passed the Old Lexington Road intersection.
His friends say he has multiple injuries, and it’s a miracle that he survived. Ramsey was being treated at the hospital.
FOX8 crews have obtained a security video from neighbors showing the moments after the impact.
Portions of the video have been blurred out.
The video shows a silver and red truck drive past the intersection on Gumtree Road followed by Ramsey rolling on the ground.
The impact and moment Ramsey was thrown from his bicycle is not visible.
