PHOENIX -- The Department of Public Safety has released images of a suspected hit-and-run driver traveling on a Valley freeway with the hood of her car up.

The driver at the wheel is Gilbert resident Kristen Rowley, 29.

According to DPS, Rowley was involved in four separate hit-and-run collisions involving six vehicles on state Route 51 and Interstate 10..

Investigators say she was driving impaired on Dec. 21 when she collided with several cars. At some point the hood of her car flew up, but she kept going.

Photo enforcement pictures show that Rowley was traveling at 89 mph in the HOV lane of westbound I-10 at 16th Street and at 90 mph with the hood up while on I-10 at 15th Avenue.

Investigators say she was under the influence of prescription drugs.

DPS will request that Rowley be charged with four counts of hit-and-run and five counts of aggravated assault.
