It could take months for 23-year-old college student Amanda O’Malley to recover from her injuries. Amanda was walking her dog during a weekend visit to her Worcester home when a 17-year-old hit-and-run driver hit her. Although the teenage driver left her on the road, another driver called 911.
Amanda O’Malley is a college student at Assumption College. According to Worcester police, Amanda was home for the weekend walking her dog when a car struck her. Instead of calling 911, or stopping to help the injured pedestrian, the driver fled the scene. His vehicle was found Sunday, although his name as not been released because he is only 17-year-old. He will face criminal charges for leaving the scene of a personal injury accident, negligent operation of a motor vehicle to endanger, failure to slow for a pedestrian and violating junior operator restrictions on passengers.
Amanda will be recovering from her injuries for several months. She suffered a concussion with swelling in her brain, a broken leg, broken arm, cracked vertebrae and broken facial bones.
