SUFFOLK, Va. -- A North Carolina woman was arrested after she allegedly hit a teen wearing a Chick-fil-A cow costume in front of a restaurant in Suffolk, Va., and then fled the scene, reports Virginia's WAVY.

Katrina Lovett Boone, 38, of Sunbury, NC was arrested Wednesday and charged with felony hit and run, the station reports.

According to a police report, Brittany Knight, 19, was hit by Boone on Monday in the 1000 block of North Main Street just before 11:30 a.m. Knight suffered a broken leg as a result of the accident, WAVY reports.

Police said Boone struck Knight as she crossed the drive-thru lane. Boone stopped briefly to find out Knight's condition and then continued through the drive-thru to get her food and then drove away, police said.

Boone later contacted Chick-fil-A and Suffolk Police regarding the incident. The problem, police told the station, is that in cases where a driver knows they have caused an injury, they are required to report their name, address, driver's license number, and vehicle registration number to the police or to the person struck and provide reasonable aid.

Knight was treated at a hospital and is resting at home, a store manager said.
