BRUNSWICK, Maine (AP) — Police say that a Maine woman was driving under the influence when she hit a bicyclist with her car and left the scene.
WCSH-TV reports (http://on.wcsh6.com/2vVvw7x ) that 23-year-old Jonathan Menard, of Brunswick, suffered serious injuries late Saturday night and was brought to Maine Medical Center.
Law enforcement agencies looked for a car with front end damage and found 35-year-old Kristen Phillips, of Brunswick, in a 2001 Mercury Grand Marquis. Efforts to reach Phillips were unsuccessful.
Police charged the woman with operating under the influence, leaving the scene of an accident and violation of conditions of release. She was released on $1,440 cash bail and expected to be in court September.
The Portland Press Herald reports that Menard was in critical condition at Maine Medical Center Sunday morning.
