ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say a woman critically injured in a hit-and-run accident in eastern Pennsylvania a week ago has died.

The Lehigh County coroner’s office said 32-year-old Ruby Marrero of Allentown was pronounced dead Tuesday morning at Lehigh Valley Hospital, Cedar Crest. An autopsy indicated that she died of multiple blunt-force injuries due to the accident.

Allentown police said Marrero was walking to a corner store when she was hit just after 8:30 p.m. Feb. 21 in the city. The car was abandoned a half-block away. Marrero was identified Thursday after family members reported her missing.

Police said 35-year-old Joshua Stockman of South Whitehall Township turned himself in to face charges of aggravated assault by vehicle and accident involving death or personal injury. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
