RALEIGH, N.C. -

A Cary man charged in connection with a deadly hit and run early Saturday morning is now charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

Around 12:45 a.m. Saturday, Natalie Chidlaw and Meghan Clark, both 18 years old, were hit by a car at the intersection of Dixie Trail and Hillsborough Street near N.C. State.

Chidlaw died at the scene and Clark was rushed to Wake Med with severe injuries. Clark is expected to recover from her injuries.

On Sunday, Adetoye Taoheed Adekanmbi, 33, is charged with two counts of felony hit and run causing bodily injury or death, and with driving while license revoked. Tuesday, Adekanmbi was rearrested and charged with one count of assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

The latest charge relates to the injuries sustained by Clark.

A tip from a member of the public initially led officers to the 100 block of Chalfont Way in Cary, where they located the suspect's car. A short time later, Adekanmbi, who lives near where the vehicle was located, was detained.
