LAWRENCE (March 11, 2015) – Charges have been filed in a violent hit-and-run crash that critically injured a man. Court records show that Jessica Livengood, 27, faces a charge of leaving the scene of an accident causing serious bodily injury.
Just after 5 p.m. Wednesday, Livengood turned herself in at the Marion County Processing Center.
Victor Ramirez was crossing the road on the 8700 block of Pendleton Pike on Feb. 21 when he was hit by a blue Dodge Charger. The driver of that vehicle–identified Wednesday as Livengood–left the scene of the accident.
Over the weekend, police said they’d found the vehicle involved in the crash and identified the driver. Livengood was expected to turn herself in, police said. Lawrence police said the car belongs to a family member and there’s no insurance on the car. Livengood’s license had been suspended for multiple traffic violations.
Ramirez has been moved out of intensive care and faces a long road to recovery.
