VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY/WFXR) — A woman in Virginia Beach has been detained after allegedly striking three parked cars and a pedestrian in what appeared to be a hit-and-run incident Sunday.

The incident began just after noon on Sunday, Oct. 25, when officers were called to the 3800 block of Princess Anne Road for a property damage call.

Initial investigations reveal that the suspect vehicle fled the scene and continued to the parking lot of a nearby gym where a pedestrian was struck.

After that, reports say the vehicle drove away again before being finally stopped on Sunstream Parkway. There were a total of three parked cars and one pedestrian struck by the suspect vehicle.

The pedestrian sustained non life-threatening injuries.  

The driver of the suspect vehicle, a still-unidentified woman, was detained on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. Officials say she was sent to a local hospital with minor injuries sustained from the incident.

The case remains under investigation. Officials say charges are still pending.
