An Ashburn woman was released on bond after being charged in the May 12 hit-and-run of a pedestrian on Gloucester Parkway.

Brittany A. Harris, 20, was charged Thursday with felony hit-and-run for allegedly leaving the scene of a May 12 collision. She is accused of hitting a 55-year-old woman who had nearly finished crossing in a crosswalk, said Liz Mills, spokeswoman for the Loudoun County Sheriffs office.

The victim suffered serious injuries, authorities said. The collision occurred at about 7:20 p.m. at the parkway at Ashby Ponds Boulevard, according to the sheriff’s office. Witnesses and evidence at the scene identified a make and model of the vehicle reportedly involved and further investigation identified the driver, the sheriff’s office announced.
