Normally, someone charged with a hit and run has hit another vehicle or a person and then made a futile and unintelligent decision to flee the scene. Normally, when someone hits a house, their car is too damaged to move.
Bess Kellebrew, 32, is a special case then, as she allegedly hit a house (in front of witnesses) and then took off, reports KSDK. Her obviously damaged vehicle was stopped on Old Route 66 by Staunton police. Sheriff's deputies that had been investigating the damaged house were alerted and joined Staunton police in their investigation of Kellebrew.
