PENNSAUKEN, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a woman driving with a suspended license struck and killed a teenage boy who was trying to cross a highway in New Jersey.

Susan Hyland was charged Tuesday with leaving the scene of a motor-vehicle accident. Her arrest came hours after the accident occurred on Route 130 in Pennsauken.

Authorities say the 40-year-old Beverly woman was driving her niece’s car when 16-year-old Quason Turner was struck around 11:20 p.m. Monday. The teen was pronounced dead at the scene.

Turner was walking home from a friend’s house and was in the southbound lanes when he was hit.

Hyland’s 19-year-old niece was a passenger in the car when the accident occurred. Authorities say she called 911 to report the crash shortly after it occurred, but then hung up.

Hyland’s bail was set at $200,000. It wasn’t known Tuesday if she’s retained an attorney.
