Delaware Woman Charged for Three Hit-And-Runs in Old Town and Driving Under the Influence

A 21-year-old Delaware woman was charged with three counts of felonious hit-and-run and one count of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs after allegedly hitting three cars in Old Town.

Niyah Selena Ranson was arrested by Alexandria Police on Sept. 24 at around 6:45 p.m., and is being held without bond in the Alexandria jail.

She is accused of first hitting a vehicle going east at the intersection of King Street and N. Columbus Streets after allegedly running a red light.

The driver “failed to stop and check on those occupants, instead fleeing east on King at a high rate of speed before running a red light at Washington (Street) and striking another vehicle,” according to a search warrant affidavit.

Again, Ranson allegedly drove away and her car was disabled and hit a vehicle at the intersection of Duke and South Columbus Streets, according to police.

“In lieu of checking on passengers, she sat on the ground and told witnesses to leave her alone,” noted the affidavit. “She then ran from the scene before being apprehended down the street by officers, where medics described her as alternating between combative and catatonic.”
