A 28-year-old woman suffered life-threatening injuries early Saturday when she was hit by a car while walking in the 3000 block of Queen City Boulevard in west Charlotte.

 Ilse Joanna Perez

The driver, Ilse Joanna Perez, 21, was charged with felony hit and run and DWI. She was taken to the Mecklenburg jail and released after posting bond.

According to a police report, the injured woman, Rhonda Williamson, was walking along Queen City Blvd at about 4:10 a.m. when she was struck by the right front side of a 2001 Buick Park Avenue that was being driven by Perez.

After striking Williams, police said, Perez drove about a mile before she pulled into a hotel parking lot, where police found her. Police said the car showed damage consistent with having been in a crash.

Mecklenburg jail records show Perez was arrested July 22 and charged with underage drinking. She was released after promising to appear in court. She has since turned 21, the legal age for consuming alcohol in North Carolina.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call detective Kevin Allred at 704-336-8862.
