DOBSON — Two arrests have been made in a hit-and-run incident at a school bus stop which left an area teen badly hurt.
The Dobson Police Department and Surry County Sheriff’s Office arrested Bruce Wayne Gwyn, 29, and Ashley Rochelle Phifer Davis, 27, on charges in connection with the hit-and-run incident that occurred on McGuffin Drive at East Atkins Street on Feb. 25 at 7:13 a.m., according to a statement from the town.
Allegedly, Gwyn was operating the vehicle which hit 15-year-old Junior Gonzalez and a younger student as the two waited for the school bus. Authorities say Davis was a passenger in the vehicle.
Gonzalez was flown to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center for treatment that morning, and the Surry Central soccer player is recovering from his injuries. The younger student, whose name was never released by authorities, was treated for minor injuries and released at the scene of the accident.
Following the Monday evening arrest, which occurred without incident, Gwyn was charged with felony failure to stop and render aid with serious bodily injury and felony failure to remain at the scene of a crash. He is being held at the Surry County Detention Center, and his bond has been set at $32,000, secured.
Davis, who was also arrested Monday evening, is at the same detention facility. She has been charged with passenger failing to give info/aid at the scene of a wreck, a misdemeanor. Her bail has been set at $2,500.
Gwyn and Davis are scheduled to appear on the charges in Surry County District Court on June 9.
