The woman, who was walking along the road close to Cash Wiz and Dolce Vita when she was hit, is understood to have received serious injuries and was taken to hospital in a critical condition. Police said that one man was arrested following the incident after a Dodge Caravan was later discovered in West Bay with front windshield damages. The male driver was arrested on suspicion of leaving the scene of an accident as well as suspicion of DUI. The man has since been bailed pending continued police investigations.

Other sources told CNS that the woman, who is a kindergarten teacher, is still in a coma and the RCIPS confirmed that officers are in contact with the victim's family. She was airlifted Thursday night to Jacksonville, USA, for treatment and remains in a critical condition.

Police are appealing to anyone who was in the vicinity at the time to contact PC Jameson at the George Town Police Station at 949-4222
