PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla – A Port St. Lucie woman was arrested last Wednesday and charged with failing to stop for a crash involving an injury. The crash occurred in the 600 block of Southwest Port St. Lucie Boulevard.
Reports detail the incident, though what happened is somewhat difficult to picture. According to officials, Joran Michel told police that he had pulled into the driveway of a friend. After he pulled in, a woman driving a red SUV hit the side of his car. Michel got out of his car and the woman put her vehicle in reverse. She exited the driveway and, as she was doing so, hit Michel with her vehicle. The woman, Lori Fairchild, 46, did not stop.
A witness to the accident that occurred at approximately 3:30 p.m. was able to provide police with a portion of the license plate number. Police were then able to use that information to track Fairchild down. She was arrested and transported to St. Lucie County Jail. Fairchild was ultimately released on bail.
Michel was treated for the injuries he sustained by medical professionals at St. Lucie Medical Center.
