CLAY, N.Y. (AP) - Police have charged a fourth person in connection with a hit-and-run accident that left a Syracuse-area man in critical condition.

The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Office says deputies charged a 35-year-old man with hindering prosecution on Sunday.

Authorities say 37-year-old Rachel Brown of Baldwinsville was using her cellphone Saturday when she drove onto the shoulder of a road in the town of Clay and struck 18-year-old Anthony Burkard of Liverpool as he rode his broke. Police say the man charged Sunday is Brown’s boyfriend.

It’s unclear if Brown has a lawyer who could comment on the charges.

Burkard was found on the side the road around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. He’s listed in critical condition.

Charges against Brown include leaving the scene of an accident without reporting it. Two others were charged with hindering prosecution.
