Ambulance hit-run suspect identified
ELKVIEW, W.Va. -- Kanawha County sheriff's deputies say they have located a woman believed to be involved in a hit-and-run collision last week that injured two paramedics in a county ambulance.
Capt. Sean Crosier of the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department said deputies believe Lisa Carol Walker, 45, of Blue Creek Road, hit the ambulance in the parking lot of the Big Chimney Hardee's at about 8:30 p.m. Oct. 2. Deputies allege that Walker then fled in a white Buick Century she was driving.
Thomas Robinson, 26, of Cross Lanes and Karrie Cunningham, 34, were injured in the collision and taken to CAMC General Hospital.
Walker allegedly told deputies she ran because she was intoxicated at the time and her car was not legal, Crosier said. He said deputies tracked Walker and the Buick down during the weekend.
Walker had not yet been arrested as of Tuesday afternoon.
