McDowell County jury hands down guilty verdict for hit-and-run suspect

WELCH, W.Va. — A McDowell County jury has found a woman guilty on multiple counts related to a fatal hit-and-run.

Angel Alberta Estep faced charges for the 2020 incident, in which a two-year-old child died a day following the hit-and-run.

The jury on Thursday found Estep guilty of leaving the scene of an accident causing death — a felony charge — as well as failure to render aid and failure to report.

Estep faces a maximum of five years in prison for the felony conviction. Court proceedings at the McDowell County Courthouse will resume June 9.
