Woman critically injured in Fayetteville hit-and-run

Posted July 20, 2011

— A woman was critically injured in a hit-and-run on Robeson Street in Fayetteville on Wednesday afternoon. 

Fayetteville police said just after 2:30 p.m. a car driven by Dilon Amel Parker, 18, went left of center and struck a car driven by 78-year-old Eulene Wright. 

Authorities said Parker got out of the car and ran from the scene leaving Tameca O'Neal, also of Langdon Street, in the vehicle. 

O'Neal, Wright and the two occupants of Wright's vehicle – Fran Johnson, 58, and Dalton Johnson, 30, both of Fayetteville – were transported to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center for treatment. Fran Johnson was listed in critical condition on Wednesday night. 

Parker, of the 100 block of Langdon Street,  was arrested around 5:30 p.m. as he exited a shuttle bus on Langdon Street. Parker has been charged with five counts of felony hit and run and one count each of not having an operator's license and driving left of the center line.

    On to the story...Hello, dude - you hit a car full of people, then leave your friends who can easily identify you in 'your' car & expect to get away with it? I understand that adrenalin can make people do some crazy things, but I don't think there is ANY excuse for this type of behavior. I mean, driving without a license is already pretty lame. Running from the scene of an accident that you caused while driving without a license? Way lame. Time to 'man up' little fella.

    @NCcarguy: I'm no liberal, but I have a feeling 'Liberalism' isn't to blame here. There have been people doing dumb and sometimes downright terrible things to other people long before Liberalism came about. For every problem that you blame on liberalism, or any other ideology that you disagree with, others may feel the same way about your ideology. If you want to address some problems that you can actually do something about, look in the mirror, not at the liberals. Additionally, I don't know if you realize this, but by blaming the actions of 'today's youth' on Liberalism, you're essentially giving them a scapegoat, rather than calling on them to take responsibility for their actions. That is one of the things that liberals often catch a lot of heat for - providing scapegoats and not calling on people to take responsibility for their own actions. Just something to think about.

    WRALisLIBERALtrash aka NCcarguy - "Liberalism is teaching them well."

    My guess is that he is a follower of Rush Limbaugh. Didn't Rush teach us how to beat the penalties of drug charges....

    Should have just stayed at the accident and try to help the people he hurt. Would have been a lot easier on him that leaving the scene. Hope the victims recover.

    Leave this man alone!! He probably had to go back home to pack a few things and take care of some unfinished business. He also wanted to say bye to his home. Yeah, uh huh.

    Wonder what made the guy think he was not going to get caught? Just made a bad situation worse. Now he also gets to sit in Jail for awhile. Wonder how long that will be since no bond was listed.
