ELON, N.C. — A driver charged with hitting an Elon College student early Wednesday was already on probation for a deadly hit-and-run two years ago.

Investigators say Robin Stanfield Ragsdale hit Toorialey Fazley, 26, who was riding on a bicycle to class, and then fled the scene.

Fazley's condition was stable at Duke University Medical Center Thursday.

In 2008, Ragsdale was found guilty of four counts of misdemeanor death by motor vehicle, after hitting and killing four people.

A judge gave her a suspended sentence of 45 days for each charge and five years' probation. Her drivers license was suspended but returned to her in March 2009.
