Woman leaves crash scene, cited

An Albany woman was arrested after she left a crash scene and deputies found open intoxicants in her vehicle, according to a release from the Green County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called to State Highway 59 near County Road SS in the town of Sylvester at 2:50 a.m. for a report of a crash.

Investigators said Shaliko F. Keepers, 28, was traveling east on Highway 59 when she lost control of her vehicle while negotiating a curve, causing it to hit an embankment and overturn.

Keepers left the scene without reporting the crash and was later found at a residence, according to deputies. She was injured and claimed she was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

Keepers was cited on suspicion of failure to maintain control of a motor vehicle, failure to report a crash to law enforcement and having open intoxicants in a motor vehicle.

Deputies said Charis C. A. Turner, 38, of Albany, gave Keepers a ride from the crash without reporting the crash. He was cited on suspicion of knowingly assisting a person fleeing from a crash.
