A 21-year-old man was charged with driving while impaired after he hit two pedestrians and injured them, according to a weekly review of Pitt County court records. 

Dylan Thomas Kruesi, 21, of 2800 Steeplechase Court, Raleigh, struck two pedestrians about 2:47 a.m. on May 4 at the intersection of Copper Beech Way and East 10th Street, according to a State Highway Patrol report.

Troopers said Kruesi struck Jalil Howard of 377 Sheperd Trail, Aberdeen, and Cassidy Cardinal of 1712 Waterford Drive, Wilson, as they crossed 10th Street near Copper Beach town homes. Kruesi took off from the scene but was apprehended a short time later. 

“The pedestrians survived the crash but sustained serious injuries,” the trooper wrote in the report. “Kruesi knew and reasonably should have known that his vehicle was involved in an accident,” he said.

Kruesi had slurred speech, blood shot glassy eyes, was slow to blink, and had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath, the records indicated. His blood alcohol level was 0.18.

Five others also were charged with driving while impaired according to court records and law enforcement reports available between May 2 and May 9. In those cases, court documents indicate:

■ Reggie Lamonte Herring, 40, 504 Church St., Princeville, was stopped at 8:45 a.m. on May 5 near U.S. 264 and N.C. 33 by the State Highway Patrol. He had red glassy eyes, a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and refused a breathalyzer.

■ Aaron James Little, 25, of 3805 Sterling Pointe Drive, Winterville, was stopped at 2:23 a.m. on May 6 near N.C. 11 and Jolly Road by the Ayden Police Department. He also was charged with driving 70 in a 60 mph zone. He had red glassy eyes, a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and was unsteady on his feet. His blood alcohol level was 0.13.

■ Raul Evaristo Moreno, 33, 3750 River Road, Vanceboro, was stopped at 7:22 p.m. on May 4 near East Hanrahan Road and Marvin Taylor Road near Grifton by the State Highway Patrol. He ran off the road to the right, crossed the center line, wrecked and fled the scene prior to his arrest. He also was charged with driving 70 in a 55 mph zone. He had red eyes and an odor of alcohol on his breath. His blood alcohol level was 0.15.

■ Vance Edward Taylor, 57, 229 Division St., Winterville, was stopped at 8:09 p.m. on May 2 near Division Street by the Winterville Police Department. He was cited for riding a moped without a helmet. He had red glassy eyes, a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and admitted to drinking alcohol. He also had his granddaughter with him. His blood alcohol level was 0.17.

■ Kelly Darleen Thornton, 24, of 4118 Montague Ave, Ayden, was stopped at 11:28 p.m. on May 9 near Railroad Street and Main Street in Winterville by the Winterville Police Department. She was found slumped over the steering wheel with her vehicle parked in the roadway. She had a strong odor of alcohol on her breath, slurred speech and red glossy eyes. She refused a breathalyzer test. (A photo of Thornton was not included in the Pitt County Detention Center database.)
