The Greenville Police Department said a suspect is charged after a hit-and-run injuring a paving crew worker in June.

King Asphalt said they were teaming with Crime Stoppers to offer a reward for information leading to an arrest in a hit-and-run crash that injured a worker along Augusta Road in the early-morning hours of June 16.

Witnesses said the victim was hit by a black Honda Accord with two females inside near the intersection of Dunbar Street and Burns Street.

King Asphalt said the victim suffered a broken leg, broken ankle, a broken collarbone, and two broken wrists. A spokesperson for the company said the victim was trying to direct the car that struck him to turn because no vehicles were being allowed to drive straight due to the paving. When the worker turned away, the car reportedly drove at him and he ended up on the hood of the car. The car then took off.

King said the employee has had multiple surgeries and will require months of rehab.

On Tuesday, police said 32-year-old Danzaler Lakisha Mills was charged with hit-and-run with great bodily injury in connection with the incident. Officers said passengers in Mills' vehicle told them she stopped briefly after hitting the worker but then fled.

She is currently being held at the Greenville Law Enforcement Center on a $10,000 bond.

On Thursday, police announced a second arrest in connection with the accident. Officers said 25-year-old Takaylia Shamonie Gary was charged with accessory after the fact to felony.

Gary was a passenger in Mills' car during the incident, police said.Per her arrest warrant, Gary admitted to disposing of the victim's cellphone in order to hide evidence of the crash.
