Raleigh police have released the report from a deadly hit and run that left one teenager dead.

The report was released just as the man police say was behind the wheel faced a judge for the second time this week.

Natalie Chidlaw was killed and Meghan Clark was injured in the crash early Saturday morning on Hillsborough Street near Dixie Trail. Police say 33-year-old Adetoye Adekanmbi left the scene.

The police report indicates Adekanmbi is suspected of driving while intoxicated.

Police says Adekanmbi, who has a wife and young child, drove into two teenagers on Hillsborough and kept going.

A memorial service will be held this weekend for Chidlaw.

Clark was also seriously injured.

The prosecution said in court it could be nine months before Clark can walk again.

Adekanmbi will heads back to court in July.

His bond will remain at a $250,000. A judge also ordered him to surrender his passport.

Adekanmbi was charged Tuesday with one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury. Saturday, he was charged on two counts of felony hit and run causing bodily injury or death and with driving while license revoked.
