A Uniondale woman who had been the victim of a hit-and-run driver ended up arrested Friday night after authorities investigating the accident found she was driving without a license, Nassau County police said.

The collision occurred at 7:19 p.m. as a 1992 Honda, traveling south on Nassau Road in Uniondale, struck the rear of a 2006 Nissan driven by the woman, who was attempting to make a left turn, police said.

The male driver of the Honda fled the scene on foot and has yet to be located, but his 56-year-old male passenger was taken to a hospital for a head injury.

The driver of the Nissan, Vilma Guifarro, 41, of Nassau Road, was treated for back pain at a hospital. Police said they later discovered Guifarro's license had been suspended multiple times.

Guifarro was released from the hospital and charged with second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and operating a motor vehicle by an unlicensed driver. She will be arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Hempstead.

Both vehicles were impounded for brake and safety checks.
