CARY, N.C. (WNCN) — Cary police have charged a Raleigh man with hitting a woman with his truck and killing her in Cary on Thursday night.

Logan Jones, 21, is charged with felony hit-and-run.

Police say Jones was driving a truck that struck 39-year-old Fasten Faud Shaikh, who was trying to cross the street near the intersection of Walnut Street and Macedonia Road.

The crash was called in around 10:15 p.m., police said.

According to Cary officials, Jones told officers that he thought he hit an animal and continued on his way home. Once he got home, he noticed all the flashing lights from the area he had just been and walked back to the scene, officials said.

When he got back to the scene, officials said he asked an emergency responder what happened and then told them he was the driver.

Jones was transported to the Wake County Detention Center and given a $15,000 secured bond. He has since bonded out.
