WILMINGTON — The Wilmington Police Department has charged a 19-year-old with hit and run after hitting a parked school bus at New Hanover High School, no students were on the bus when the accident happened.

“Amelia Rae Watts, of Wilmington, failed to maintain lane control as she drifted into the school bus loading zone around 8:20 a.m., March 18. The students exited the bus approximately three minutes before the impact occurred,” according to the Wilmington Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Dandron.

The driver of the bus managed to chase the car and obtain the license plate information.

“The bus driver attempted to alert Watts, who did not stop after the incident, by honking his horn several times. He was able to obtain a partial registration plate number before exiting the bus and running after the suspect vehicle. The driver ran nearly one city block when he caught up to Watts, who was stopped in traffic at 14th and Market Street. The bus driver then was able to obtain the full plate number, which aided investigators in locating Watts,” Dandron said.
