A vehicle registered to Kathryn Dennis was involved in an alleged hit-and-run incident in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, on Oct. 20, PEOPLE has confirmed.

A 2022 Ford SUV registered in the name of the former Southern Charm star, 32, struck a school resource officer directing traffic in front of Whitesville Elementary School on Gaillard Road, near Chavis Lane, around 7:18 a.m, Lance Corporal Nick Pye of the South Carolina Highway Patrol told PEOPLE. The injured officer received medical attention on site.

The Ford SUV "did not stop at the scene of the collision," Pye said, confirming that the vehicle was later located at Dennis's address.

As of Tuesday, the incident was under investigation by the South Carolina Highway Patrol, which did not reveal who was driving the car.

PEOPLE has made multiple attempts to reach Dennis about the incident, without success. However, a knowledgeable source has also confirmed to PEOPLE that Southern Charm star was involved in the alleged incident.

Bravo fans first came to know Dennis when the Charleston-set reality series debuted in 2014. She met Thomas Ravenel during season 1, and by the end of that year's filming they were expecting daughter Kensington Calhoun, now 9. The next year, they welcomed son Saint Julien in November 2015.

Dennis's time on the show was dominated by her combustible on-and-off relationship with Ravenel, now 61, leading to many allegations on his part about her sobriety and fitness as a mother. They struggled for years to settle a protracted custody battle, finally doing so in 2019, and have continued to work on their dynamic as co-parents after the fallout of their romantic relationship.

PEOPLE confirmed in January that Dennis would be leaving Southern Charm after eight seasons.

In September, she dedicated another Instagram post to her kids, writing, “When I am with you I feel so alive again even when you can’t see me or hear me I am always thinking of you..know that our love connects us by an invisible string, always. I know that we will make it through these tough times and they won’t last forever. 🙏♥️ sending strength to all of the coparents out there."

She continued, "No matter the situation being without your children is the most difficult pain you must carry each and every day you are without them. It’s so unnatural and such a drawn out devastation. We need each others love and support—here’s to hope for the future ♥️"
