Driver runs down pedestrian

Police are announcing charges against an Oliver woman for running down another woman with her vehicle last week.

RCMP were called to the 6000 block of Lakeside Drive in Oliver on Friday for a report of an injured pedestrian. Investigators found the victim had been hit by a vehicle following a disagreement between the victim and driver.

Police later determined the vehicle in question had been stolen from Oliver the night before, and immediately informed neighbouring detachments about the incident.

After leaving Oliver, the suspect then crashed the vehicle in Princeton and was arrested by local officers.

Angelene Solien, 22, appeared in Penticton court Monday and pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and failure to stop at an accident. She is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday. 

Police say Solien and the victim were known to each other.
