Police said that Golden Angela Garrette was involved in a wreck at Walnut and Meeting streets shortly before 9:30 p.m. She kept driving on Meeting Street but wrecked for a second time at Crossroads Boulevard.
Garrette abandoned her vehicle and fled, but officers apprehended her after a short foot chase, police said.
Some other motorists suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene.
Garrette was charged with hit-and-run, along with DWI. She was released from the Wake County jail Sunday morning after posting a $15,000 bond. Her first court appearance was set for Monday.
Garrette is serving 2 years' probation for a 2008 DWI conviction in Guilford County, according to state Department of Correction records. She was also convicted of assaulting or threatening a government official.
