A Fort Mill woman was struck from behind by a hit & run driver last week on Highway 160, but a Good Samaritan chased the suspect to Rock Hill and helped lead to her arrest.
Jenevie Spooner, 39, of Graybeard Avenue, Charlotte (pictured), was charged with hit & run in last Thursday’s wreck at the intersection of U.S. 21 and SC 160, according to Fort Mill police.
The victim said she was stopped at the red light when a yellow Mustang rear-ended her vehicle. Spooner then drove around her vehicle and fled, according to a Fort Mill police report.
Luckily, a Good Samaritan by the name of Sha’kon Looper of Rock Hill, followed the 2018 Mustang into Rock Hill and notified police over the phone. A York County deputy found the suspect on Anderson Road and stopped her.
Spooner was then placed under arrest and booked at police headquarters. A police report does not mention the condition of the victim or whether she went to the hospital.
