SACO, Maine (AP) - An elderly Maine woman who was critically injured in a hit-and-run crash in June has died in the hospital where she was being treated for her injuries.

A Maine Medical Center official says 87-year-old Jewell Friedman of Saco died early Saturday morning.

Police say Friedman was walking her dog on June 21 when a pickup truck hit her and then drove off. The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1kP9F4h ) that 45-year-old Leo Paul Bedard of Saco was arrested two days on later on a charge of leaving the scene of the accident after police received a tip.

He’s being held on the felony charge and previous charges including driving after a license suspension, failing to appear in court and violating the conditions of release.
