UPDATE: 2nd woman charged in hit-and-run that left Wake County teen girl seriously injured

Police said Davis fled the scene.

“I wanted to hug her so bad, but I just couldn’t touch her because I didn’t know where it was going to hurt,” said mother Jenna Allen.

She said her teenage daughter was heading home from work Friday when the hit-and-run occurred. Fuquay-Varina police responded shortly after 10:30 p.m. Isabella was transported to WakeMed in Raleigh with critical injuries, police said.

Isabella was supposed to start school in a week. Instead, she’ll likely still be in the hospital recovering.

“Bella is such a fun person and always happy,” her mother said. “And she is so outgoing and artistic.”

Police said Davis is charged with felony hit-and-run causing serious bodily injury, reckless driving, and no operator’s license. She was transported to the Wake County Detention Center and given a $15,000 bond. She bonded out and had her first court appearance on Tuesday morning.

“I can understand an accident happens, but how can you leave a person on the side of the road that is not responding and is covered in blood — how do you just leave somebody like that?” Jenna asked.
