The Randolph County Sheriff's Department is investigating a hit-and-run involving a pedestrian that occurred last week.

Chief Deputy M.T. Brady with the Randolph County Sheriff's Department said that Maureen Joan Miller, 36, address unknown, was taken to Ruby Memorial Hospital Thursday night with injuries after she was struck by a vehicle on Ward Road.

A spokesman for Ruby Memorial Hospital said no patient by that name was registered at the hospital as of late Friday afternoon.

"We believe the vehicle intentionally tried to strike her," Brady said Friday. Brady provided no specific information about the vehicle or its driver, but said the case is under active investigation.

"We have a suspect in the case, but no arrests have been made," he said. "We think it began as a physical altercation between two females and then one got in a vehicle and struck the other with her vehicle."

Brady said he did not know what the women were fighting about.

Deputy B.T. Talkington is the investigating officer. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Randolph County Sheriff's Department at 304-636-2111.
