MILFORD, Conn. -- A Bridgeport woman was arrested Friday in a hit-and-run crash in Milford last August that left a woman from Stratford still suffering from serious injuries seven months later, police said.

The woman was hit at 11 p.m. Aug. 28 as she was leaving work at the Bridge House Restaurant on Bridgeport Avenue. A dark-colored sedan was seen fleeing the scene, according to police.

The pedestrian, later identified as 34-year-old Amanda Keane, suffered a fractured skull, broken neck, and broken back. A GoFundMe was set up last year by her boss .

The driver, 30-year-old Antonia Pierce of Bridgeport, was charged with reckless driving, evading responsibility and second-degree assault.

Keane, who still suffering from the injuries in the crash, can't remember the accident and cannot return to work, WTNH-TV said.

Police also told WTNH that Pierce lived in Milford at the time of the accident, near where it took place, but she moved out abruptly, leaving behind many possessions.
