At 12:48 am Barnstable Police Officer Nathan St. Onge rolled up on the accident scene which occurred in the 500 block of Main Street.
Onlookers were assisting the male pedestrian who had injuries to his head a leg.
Also on scene was 28-year-old Caitlyn Fenn of Hyannis, who was alleged to be the driver of the vehicle which struck the male pedestrian.

The male pedestrian was transported to Cape Cod Hospital where he was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Fenn was transported to the Barnstable Police Station where she was booked and later bailed pending an appearance in Barnstable District Court on Monday, July 9, 2018.
The windshield of the Volvo wagon was shattered as a result of the impact with the pedestrian.
