    what the heck was Angalo doing riding a bike at 9:45 at night? Drunk or not, it was DARK!!!

    SOunds to me the following:

    1. She did not want to share the road.

    2. She thought she was the only person who owned it.

    3. In court, she will attempt to blame the bicyclist.

    4. By the looks of the girl, she had a rough weekend.

    sounds more like the driver should not have been on the road. there's gotta be a pic with the prior record bumblebee. should be easy to verify.

    Do you think that maybe this is the same Kristen Marie Snipes who already has charges pending in Wake County for DWI, unsealed alcohol in the passenger area, and civil revocation of driver's license??? Bumble Bee

    It would be interesting to find out if it is the same individual. But do you think that the WRAL "reporters" would do the hard work of investigative reporting to determine your hunch is true?

    Very bad decision to flee the accident scene on her part. Glad the cyclist will be ok.

    daddyham, I agree. The responsible and moral thing to do is stop. Its hard for me to imagine hitting someone and NOT stopping. But if you have something you want to hide....

    Regardless of the circumstances leading up to the accident, the driver still showed her irresponsibility by not stopping.

    The first story said the vehicle had front end AND windshield damage, which the biker rolled up onto the car. She had to have known she hit him. I want to know if she drove the damaged car to S.C.
