CARY, North Carolina (WTVD) — A man who suffered serious injuries when an alleged hit-and-run driver plowed into him in Cary is thanking the people who helped track down the suspect.

Beverly Yvonne McNair, 59, of the 1600 block of Patterson Grove in Apex, has been charged with one count of felony hit and run, which is a class F felony carrying a penalty of up to 41 months in jail.

Cary police say she hit 57-year-old Doug Porter as he rode his scooter on Penny Road April 8.

Porter needs the help of a walker to get around these days. After two surgeries he is now home nursing a broken jaw that’s wired shut, a broken eye socket, an ankle broken in two places, and a broken finger.

“Coming up Penny Road and the next thing I know I’m in the ambulance going to the hospital. That’s all I remember,” he said.
