Accused Hit-And-Run Driver Has Been Charged And Bailed
On Thursday morning, Police made an announcement that they were close to catching the woman involved in the hit-and-run of a teen girl, and that this was her last chance to show some remorse by handing herself in.
It was then announced on Thursday afternoon that a woman, now identified as 41-year-old Thi Nguyen from Sunshine West, had finally handed herself into police.
Ms Nguyen has now been charged and released on bail over the hit-and-run incident that left a 13-year-old girl fighting for life in hospital.
The young girl had been riding her bike through Coburg on Sunday when Ms Nguyen hit her with a dark-grey BMW.
Ms Nguyen has been charged with dangerous driving causing serious injury, failing to stop after a serious injury collision, failing to render assistance after a serious injury collision and failing to exchange name and address or report a collision.
The accused woman handed herself in via her lawyer's office in Little Lonsdale Street in CBD at 10:50 am on Thursday before she was taken into custody by detectives of the Major Collision Investigation Unit.
Ms Nguyen is set to face Melbourne Magistrates Court on Monday while the teenager involved remains in an induced coma in a critical condition in hospital.
