A Roanoke man has been arrested and charged with DUI maiming in a January collision that left a pedestrian severely injured, according to the Roanoke County Police Department.
Boris Kolenda is accused of crashing a Nissan SUV near the intersection of Fleetwood Avenue and Brandywine Avenue around 4:30 p.m. Jan. 29, officials said.
A pedestrian was severely injured, said a police spokeswoman, and a dog was struck and killed. The SUV also reportedly ran into a light pole and struck a parked jeep.
Court records indicate Kolenda, who had no middle name listed, was initially charged with a misdemeanor count of DWI.
In October, a new charge of DUI maiming, a felony, was filed through a direct indictment. Kolenda was arrested on the new charge Monday.
His case is currently set for trial in February.
