25th Street Hit and Run Update

CORPUS CHRISTI - Friday night's fatal hit and run on 25th Street has taken a bizarre turn. It turns out the woman who survived that hit and run was the victim of another hit and run nearly a month ago.

Disturbing surveillance video from May 11th shows that hit and run on Mary Street and Harmon.

A 56-year-old woman was left with a broken hip when a black pick up hit her as she crossed the intersection.

That same woman was still recovering from those injuries when she and her boyfriend were hit by a suspected drunk driver Friday night.

She survived this second hit and run, but was critically injured.

Her boyfriend, 56-year-old Ray Lopez, died of his injuries at a local hospital.

The woman who police say hit the couple, 30-year-old Christine Griffin, was arrested about an hour later at a nearby apartment complex.

Griffin is charged with intoxication manslaughter, intoxication assault with a vehicle and causing an accident where someone was hurt or killed.

Her bond is set at $570,000.
