LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

Investigators with the Livingston Police Department are still investigating a hit-and-run incident that occurred early Saturday morning and left a woman with serious injuries.

James Hairm Dobbs, 28, of Austin, was arrested a short time later and charged with leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in serious bodily injury or death, which is a felony. Dobbs has since been released from the Polk County Jail.

According to a press release, an officer from the Livingston Police Department was dispatched out to the Raceway convenience store located at 1605 West Church Street at approximately 1 a.m. Saturday. When the officer arrived on the scene, he or she learned that a woman had been hit by a white pickup truck driven by a white man, who fled the scene in his vehicle.

Assisting agencies located the pickup a short time later on U.S. Highway 59 South. The driver was identified as Dobbs.

The female victim was later identified as Kimberly Gradney. She was treated at the scene for incapacitating injuries and later airlifted to a Houston hospital.

According to witnesses, the incident possibly started when Dobbs' vehicle was struck by another vehicle driven by Jordan Oates of Leggett while both vehicles were traveling on Highway 190 West, the press release stated. The two parties pulled into the Raceway parking lot to exchange information.

The witnesses said a passenger in Oates' vehicle, who was later identified as James Coy Munson, got out and started fighting with Dobbs.

"During the course of the fight, Dobbs attempted to leave the scene, and while doing so, struck Gradney," the press release stated.

Munson, 26, of Livingston, was charged with disorderly conduct and public intoxication.

The press release stated that more arrests and charges could follow, depending on the toxicology results.
