Destiny Bates of Bloomington was arrested after a hit-and-run accident Thursday afternoon.
Bates, 27, was arrested for failure to obey a stop sign, operating an uninsured vehicle while under the influence with a canceled or revoked registration and resisting a police officer.
Bloomington police officers were called to a two-motor vehicle accident near the intersection of Madison Street and Oakland Avenue. Officers located a blue and black vehicle at the scene. It was reported the driver of the blue vehicle was driving north on Madison Street and the black vehicle was driving west on West Oakland Avenue before the crash.
The blue vehicle was overturned and the driver, Bates, was the sole occupant of the car and left the scene. Officers located Bates walking out of a nearby apartment. After a foot pursuit, Bates was arrested in the 900 block of West Olive Street.
The sole driver, a 22-year-old Normal woman, was still in the driver’s seat and suffered apparent but non-life-threatening injuries. She was transported to Advocate BroMenn Hospital for her injuries.
Bates is being held in the McLean County Jail. No bond information is available at this time.
