Driver Indicted for Leaving Fatal Accident Scene

April 12, 2019 – A 30-year-old woman who hit and killed a pedestrian last year in Whitehaven was indicted Thursday on charges of leaving the scene of an accident involving death, said Shelby County Dist. Atty. Gen. Amy Weirich.
Defendant Jasmine Jenkins is free on $10,000 bond on the felony charge.
Investigators said that shortly before 10 p.m. on Sept. 1, 2018, Jenkins was driving eastbound on Winchester Road near Swinnea Road when she changed lanes to avoid a disabled car. Her vehicle struck and killed Marlon Hunter, 47, who was in the roadway directing cars away from the disabled vehicle.
Jenkins did not stop and continued driving east on Winchester, investigators said. She was arrested and charged four days later.
