Katherine Mosson's charges include an illegal lane change and leaving the scene of an accident involving an injury. The family of the victim questions why she came forward now when the accident happened back on November 17th.

After the accident police say the Mosson, who was given a $10,500 surety bond, left the scene and didn't bother to help. The Charleston Police Department asked for help from the public searching for a charcoal gray Honda Accord that sustained damage to its passenger side quarter panel.

 As the search was ongoing Mosson showed up at the police department on Friday morning to tell investigators her side. Meantime her attorney David Aylor was not saying much about the timeframe or about Mosson's reaction after the incident.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to him of course and his family but in regards to anything specific related to the accident, how it occurred or any kind of traffic violation, we're just not going to speak at this time."

The incident happened around 12:45am on November 17th.  Court papers say Mosson was traveling north on Highway 61 when she was near the intersection of Colony Drive.

 It's alleged she entered the bike lane and struck the victim, Terrell Wright from behind. He was thrown off his bike and suffered significant head trauma as well as broken bones. He is still unconscious and his family members say he is breathing with the help of a ventilator. Wright's brother Dehlman Drayton said on Friday that if was weren't for those nearby it may have turnout differently.

"I think that's a very low bond ten thousand dollars, if it wasn't for some of the witnesses that came and helped my little brother out he could have died in that ditch."
