— A Rock Hill teenager spent time in jail, police say, after she left the scene of an accident after running a woman off the road, sending her crashing into a light pole and then to the hospital on Sunday.

Sometime before 1:15 a.m., officers responded to a hit-and-run at North Anderson and Mount Gallant roads. They found Iashia Hall-Stanley, 36, suffering from injuries in the crash, and an unoccupied gray Nissan Maxima parked nearby, according to a Rock Hill Police report.

According to police, Hall-Stanley’s car was hit by the Nissan Maxima, causing Hall-Stanley to drive off the roadway and hit a light pole, which also resulted in a power outage, the report states.

EMS took Hall-Stanley to Piedmont Medical Center. Her condition was unavailable Monday.

Police noticed significant damage to the abandoned Nissan before finding a discarded driver’s license belonging to Naquisha Burris, 17. As police continued investigating, two girls, both 17, came forward and identified Burris as the driver.

Officers found Burris about four hours after the accident and charged her with leaving the scene of an accident. She was released from jail later Sunday on a $5,000 bond.
