A Victoria woman sheepishly denied being a hit-and-run driver to police Monday, despite leaving a large piece of her bumper behind at the scene of the collision.

Victoria Police Department officers were called to the the 3000-block of Scott St. just after noon after reports of a red Pontiac Grand Am striking a parked Mazda 5.

One witness managed to write down the Grand Am licence plate number before the driver fled the scene.

When police arrived at the woman’s house and saw her damaged vehicle, the driver initially denied knowledge of the accident, but soon took responsibility and was issued a $368 ticket for failing to remain at the scene of an accident.
