Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon said 24-year-old Morgan Borens,of Lynnville, was arrested Wednesday at her home.

Poindexter remains in critical condition at Deaconess Hospital in Evansville, IN. He was found in the roadway on KY 564 by a passing motorist after he was struck by a vehicle.

Evidence left at the scene and information called into the sheriff's office led deputies to Borens. During an interview with police, Borens allegedly confessed to being the driver of the vehicle that struck Poindexter. Borens then left the scene and drove to her home.

Borens is charged with 1st degree assault, leaving the scene of an accident, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and no insurance. She was lodged in the Graves County Jail.
