JUNEAU, Alaska - A 42-year-old driver suspected of striking a Juneau pedestrian and fleeing has been arrested on a felony charge.

Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Cindee Brown-Mills tells KINY-radio ( that Yvonne Bennett was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

She's charged with failure to render aid after injuring someone using a motor vehicle.

A conviction on the charge is punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Police say Bennett was driving a borrowed car Saturday morning when she struck a pedestrian in a crosswalk on Glacier Highway at Jordan Avenue.

The 50-year-old female pedestrian suffered an injury that police call serious but not life-threatening.
