A driver who is accused of striking two parked cars, one of which was occupied, Monday afternoon in northwest Moultrie was arrested after an officer witnessed the incident.

Bruce Dewayne Bishop, 19, 718 Fourth St. N.W. Apt A, was charged with hit and run and no driver’s license.

Moultrie Police Department reports said that an officer patrolling at 2:30 p.m. in the 700 block of Sixth Street saw a gray Dodge Avenger backing out of an alley. The driver traveled all the away across the street and into a driveway, where it struck a Pontiac G6 owned by Monique Jackson.

The car, driven by Bishop, continued on, taking a right turn onto Seventh Avenue and another right onto Seventh Street, where it struck a parked Chevrolet Impala owned by Katrina Church, police said. The passengers in that car got out and ran toward the nearby apartment complex.
