After hitting two young Black boys in a hit-and-run incident, a 31-year-old white woman from Long Island, NY, was arrested after leaving the two boys hospitalized with serious injuries, according to Newsday.

Suffolk County police stated that Major Case Unit detectives arrested the driver, Shannon Palmer, at 5:45 a.m. outside her home on Roosevelt Boulevard. The accident took place two weeks ago on August 3 and Palmer was arrested and booked the following day.

She has been charged with two counts of leaving the scene of an accident with serious physical injury for hitting the two boys. The two young boys were among three boys who were riding their bicycles on the shoulder of Express Drive North in Ronkonkoma, near the intersection of Old Nichols Road. Palmer allegedly struck 9-year-old Troy Russell and 12-year-old Toriano Jamison with a Ford Explorer she was navigating at approximately 7:35 p.m. 6-year-old Max Jamison escaped harm.

According to police, Russell, who is from North Amityville, was airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital in serious condition. Jamison, who is from Ronkonkoma, was transported to Stony Brook via ambulance. Police said he also suffered serious injuries.

A GoFundMe page was set up for hospital expenses.

Palmer has been released from custody.
