Fayette County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a driver who fled the scene of a serious injury vehicle crash Monday evening on Pine Knott Road in north Fayette County, according to Fayette County Sheriff Barry Babb.

Hunter Ross Cooper, 19, of 201 Mitchell Road, Fayetteville was arrested today (Wednesday, June 25) and charged with a litany of offenses including obstruction of a law enforcement officer, two felony counts of causing serious injury by vehicle, DUI, endangering a child while DUI, hit and run, leaving the scene of an accident, driving with a revoked or suspended license and other traffic offenses along with one charge of violating probation, according to jail documents.

Deputies allege that Cooper was squired away from the area by his grandmother, George Ann Brown, 69, also of 201 Mitchell Road, Fayetteville, who faces one misdemeanor charge of obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

When deputies responded to the crash site around 9:45 p.m. June 23, they found three injured passengers ranging from 16 to 20 years old, Babb said. Another injured passenger, a female, had fled the scene with Cooper initially but was located on Buckeye Road and taken to a hospital for treatment, Babb said.

Scum

This kid is one of the biggest scum bags. He was driving under the influence with minors in the car and endangering their lives.

For starters

I feel very bad for these kids. On the other hand if they would have been where they were supposed to be none of this would have happened. They were all under the influence and they still believe the only action that was unjust was the speeding. They do not believe that driving under the influence was wrong. The youngest was also involved in the illegal actions. The 16 year old is in a relationship with the driver. They were not supposed to be around the area. They were supposed to be with their father. There comes a point in everyone's life when they have to decide whether they want to go down a nice road or a rocky bad road. This family has chosen a bad road.
Though I feel bad about the injuries, I believe it was no ones fault but their own.

grandmother

There was no mention in the article about a 13 year old. Was she the one who fled the scene with Cooper (in the article)?

Some people create their own problems, doncha know?

Looks like 10 years in the big house for the kid and maybe 1 year in prison and 5 years probation for Grandma. If she gets a good lawyer and convinces the judge that she and grandkid are white, then maybe she can get in cut in half.
