A Bryan teen was arrested early Saturday after police say he hit a woman with his car while driving drunk, then ran from police.
According to College Station police, around 2 a.m., officers responded to the intersection of Texas Avenue and University Drive, where a pedestrian had been hit by a car. A witness said the driver did not stop to assist the woman, but continued on to a nearby parking lot and got out to look at the damage to his vehicle before leaving.
Authorities located the vehicle in a Bryan parking lot, and the driver, 17-year-old Pedro Damion Puga, left the area on foot when he saw police, authorities said. He was apprehended at Texas Avenue and Villa Maria, where he told police he doesn’t deal with “the laws,” a report states. The victim received various broken bones and sustained internal bleeding, police said.
Puga is charged with intoxicated assault with serious bodily injury and accident involving serious bodily injury without rendering aid, both third-degree felonies punishable by up to 10 years in prison. He is also charged with evading arrest on foot, a Class A misdemeanor. He remains in the Brazos County Jail on $26,000 bond.
