Keithville couple arrested for hit and run

Caddo Sheriff's deputies have arrested a Keithville couple for a hit and run accident that left a teenager injured.

On November 9, a 15-year-old pedestrian was struck by a black Ford pickup in the 10000 block of Jersey Gold in Keithville. The boy was transported to an area hospital for treatment of moderate injuries.  Information about the incident was forwarded to the Traffic Safety Unit, which, on Wednesday, arrested Ronald and Donna McCartney for their involvement in the hit and run. 

Ronald McCartney, 43, was charged with vehicular negligent injury and felony hit and run. Donna McCartney, 36, was charged with accessory to vehicular negligent injury and was also found to have a warrant through Caddo Parish for disturbing the peace. Both were booked into the Caddo Correctional Center. 

Traffic Safety Investigator Michael Vaitkus said the couple's truck had damage to the front bumper, hood, and front passenger side headlight. Other damage to the truck was repaired by the couple less than 24 hours after the crash.
