Teen cited in Worcester hit-and-run


WORCESTER, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) -- A 17-year-old driver was cited Sunday for his alleged role in a Friday night hit-and-run.

The unidentified teenage boy was interviewed by Worcester police and cited for leaving the scene of a personal injury, negligent operation of a motor vehicle to endanger, failure to slow for a pedestrian in a roadway, and a junior operator license violation with regard to a passenger restriction.

Investigators accuse the teen of hitting a 23-year-old woman, Amanda O'Malley, while she was attempting to cross Belmont Street in Worcester just after 10:30 p.m. Friday. The driver fled the scene prior to police arrival.

O'Malley sustained injuries to her head, leg, and arm. She was transported to UMass Medical Center where she remained in serious condition Monday.

The teen was expected to be summonsed to Worcester County District Juvenile Courthouse at a later date.

An investigation into the hit-and-run remains ongoing.
