Posted June 18, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — A Cary man facing charges in the weekend hit-and-run death of a woman now faces an additional charge in the case.
Adetoye Taoheed Adekanmbi, 33, of 103 E. Chalfont Way, was arrested Saturday on two counts of felony hit-and-run causing bodily injury or death and driving with a revoked license in connection with the Hillsborough Street collision that killed Natalie Chidlaw, 18, and injured her friend, Meghan Clark, also 18.
Adekanmbi was arrested Tuesday on one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.
"The charge relates to the injuries sustained by Meghan Clark as a result of the June 15 collision and reflects the continuing nature of the follow-up investigation of the case," police said in a statement.
Clark was listed in good condition Monday at WakeMed.
Investigators said Chidlaw and Clark were crossing Hillsborough Street near Dixie Trail around 12:45 a.m. Saturday when a dark Volkswagen sedan hit them.
Officers arrested Adekanmbi about 12 hours later after finding the car.
A visitation and memorial service for Chidlaw are planned for 1 p.m. Saturday at Raleigh Mennonite Church, which is held at Hope Charter Elementary School, 1116 N. Blount St.
