Lexington police arrested two people after a hit-and-run sent a teenager to the hospital Tuesday.

Police said it happened at the intersection of Richmond Road and Old Todds around 3 p.m.

They said two girls were crossing the street when a driver crashed into one of them while under the influence.

Officers said the suspect drove off, and the girl was sent to UK Hospital with torso and leg injuries.

An hour and a half later, police stopped a U-Haul on I-75 southbound. They arrested Stewart Smith, 34, and Alison Green, 34.

Police said Smith was the driver.

Court documents show that police found an open bottle of vodka in the truck. They also stated that Green tried to get rid of drugs that were in the vehicle.

Smith was charged with driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident, among other things.

Green was charged with drug-related crimes, but later released from jail.

Both are scheduled to be arraigned in Fayette District Court Wednesday.
