Police at scene of pedestrian struck watch different hit-and-run

HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Police say a Pennsylvania driver struck a pedestrian in front of officers looking into an earlier report of a pedestrian hit.

The Harrisburg police officers went to an area near a bar around 2 a.m. Sunday after a 911 caller reported a pedestrian having been struck. They found no victim.

Pennlive.com reports a driver then ran over a pedestrian right in front of the officers and sped away.

Police Sgt. Kyle Gautsch says the victim, a 26-year-old man, refused medical attention. Officers eventually caught up with the 21-year-old driver, Jarae Lee.

Police say Lee appeared intoxicated and kicked an officer in the chest. She faces charges including aggravated assault. Online court documents don't list a lawyer for her.

Police never found the victim from the original call.

Pennlive.com reports that Lee's criminal record includes previous convictions for DUI, harassment and providing false information to police. On Monday she was still in jail in lieu of $75,000 cash bond.
