A Farmingville woman has been arrested, accused of leaving the scene of a hit-and-run accident that seriously injured a 14-year-old boy in April, Suffolk County police said.
Police on Thursday arrested Sabrina Jung, 35, on charges of leaving the scene of an incident resulting in serious physical injury without reporting it and third-degree insurance fraud, police said.
She is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Central Islip.
Police found the boy, also from Farmingville, at about 2 a.m. April 27 after he had been hit by a vehicle on Blue Point Road in Farmingville.
He was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police said. His name was not released, but police Thursday said he had been discharged from the hospital, is being home-schooled and is undergoing physical therapy.
Det. Sgt. James Madden said at the time the vehicle that hit the boy likely had front-end and headlight damage because of broken glass found at the scene.
Madden also said the boy's mother told police her son had been spending the night at a friend's house.
At the time of the accident, the boy was returning to that house with a friend, walking on a stretch of the roadway that did not have sidewalks, Madden said.
