Warner Robins driver charged with DUI after teen hit, injured

A Warner Robins man faces numerous charges including DUI after a 13-year-old was critically injured when he was hit by a van Sunday evening.

Ramon Quinones-Correa, 31, was driving a 1997 Chevrolet Astro on Diggs Boulevard when he left the road and hit the teen who was standing in a yard at 205 Diggs Boulevard, according to a news release from the Warner Robins Police Department.

After hitting the teen, the van hit a mailbox and utility pole head-on before heading back into the road in the wrong lane and then hit a chain link fence at 303 Diggs Boulevard before the driver tried to run away, the release stated.

Neighbors detained Quinones-Correa and escorted him back to the scene where he was arrested.

Police charged him with serious injury by vehicle, hit and run, driving with a suspended license, reckless driving and failing to report an accident with injury or damage and other charges.

The injured teen was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia for surgery and was in serious but stable condition late Sunday night.
