According to Virginia State Police, Catherine Lindahl, 22, hit Elizabeth Bell, 36, from behind as Bell was walking on the eastbound side of Valley Mill Road just outside the city limits of Winchester.
FREDERICK COUNTY, Va. - Investigators say they're using hair fibers found on the windshield area and passenger door of a vehicle to help in a hit and run case.

According to Virginia State Police, at 12:30 a.m. Thursday morning, Catherine Lindahl, 22 of Stephens City, hit Elizabeth Bell, 36, from behind as Bell was walking on the eastbound side of Valley Mill Road just outside the city limits of Winchester.

Upon striking Bell, Lindahl left the scene. Court documents say Bell suffered serious injuries and was later transported to Winchester Medical Center.

With the assistance of K-9 Units from the Frederick County Sheriff's Office, Lindahl was located half a mile away from the scene. It was then that they also noticed the hair fibers on her vehicle.

Investigators filed search warrants in Frederick County Circuit Court for the hair fibers, and another in Winchester Circuit Court for the victim's DNA.

Lindhal was charged with DUI and felony hit and run. She was released on bond and is expected to appear in court on July 18, 2014. 

Bell's current condition is unknown.
