A 40-year-old Ayden man was charged with driving while impaired and hit and run after he ran into another car that was parked on the opposite side of the street, according to a weekly review of Pitt County court records.

Anthony Marcell Sutton of 4374 Lee St., Ayden, was in a collision about 8:40 p.m. on Dec. 20 on Sixth Street near Pitt Street in Ayden.

Sutton was driving a 2016 Hyundai on Sixth Street when his vehicle crossed to the left side of the road and hit a truck that was parked on the opposite side of the road. He left the scene and later admitted he struck the vehicle. He told the Ayden Police Department that he struck the truck while avoiding hitting a child. He was unsteady on his feet, had slurred speech, red glassy eyes and passed out in front of the magistrate. A blood test was taken to determine impairment.

Sutton was also charged with hit and run. Damage to the other vehicle included knocking out the right headlight and damaging the hood and fender.
