Akron police said they have arrested the Akron woman suspected of crashing into a construction site and injuring a worker on Interstate 77 last month.

Police Lt. Rick Edwards said Tamika Perkins was taken into custody around 9 a.m. today by Akron officers along with the U.S. Marshals Office Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force.

Edwards said Perkins was found “hiding behind the furnace in her basement on Hollinger Street.”

Perkins, 40, is charged with felony hit-skip and misdemeanor charges of driving with a suspended license and failure to control her vehicle.

A surveillance video showed a woman who police say is Perkins get out of her vehicle and go into a gas station convenience store.

Police have identified Perkins as the driver of the tan sport utility vehicle that struck the worker on I-77 north of the Vernon Odom Boulevard exit. The worker suffered severe injuries, police said.
