VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – A Virginia Beach woman accepted full responsibility to fleeing the scene after hitting a jogger with her car in September 2018.
Alexis Rummel pleaded guilty to felony hit-and-run of a pedestrian where the jogger sustained injuries including two broken ankles, two broken ribs, a cracked vertebrae and her a swollen face.
The 29-year-old said in court that she fled the scene because she was scared and panicked.
On Tuesday, Rummel was sentenced to one year in prison.
