A New Bern man is in critical condition after police say he was the victim of a hit and run just after midnight.
Arrild Force and his brother were walking down South Glenburnie Road when a black Mitsubishi Eclipse struck him. The vehicle then left. The 23-year-old man is in a Wilmington hospital.
Police say they found the Eclipse on Tomlinson Boulevard and charged its driver, Brittany Hanigan with DWI. Police say Hanigan already has a pending court date later this month in Charlotte for another DWI charge.
The 24-year-old Hanigan is in jail on a $15,000 bond.
Police say they are still looking for a passenger in the Eclipse and other witnesses in the case. They also say additional charges are expected.
