Officers arrested a Rock Hill man after a hit-and-run crash left a woman with a broken arm on Saturday night, according to a report by Rock Hill Police.

Ronald Bass, 46, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident that involved an injury.

According to the report, Bass was driving a white van when he struck a 50-year-old Rock Hill woman who was walking on a crosswalk along Heckle Boulevard as the pedestrian walk signal was lit.

Witnesses told police that after striking the woman, the driver stopped in the roadway but didn’t help her and instead continued to drive. The victim, who received a broken arm and a chest wound from the collision, was laying on the ground in front of a Wells Fargo bank when police arrived on scene. Her injuries required surgery.

Police were able to locate Bass and the van hours after the accident at Sam’s Mart on Saluda Street. The report states that Bass told police, “I’m the one you are looking for.”

There was no indication that Bass may have been intoxicated, the report states.
