Hit and run suspect sentenced

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma woman who pleaded guilty after a hit and run was sentenced to 2.5 years behind bars on Tuesday.

45-year-old Audrey Ryan learned her sentence in Judge Darci Weede's courtroom.

So far, Ryan has served 109 days in the Yuma County Jail.

Her original charges were hit and run and tampering with physical evidence. However, last month she accepted a plea deal for attempting to leave the scene of an accident, which is a Class 3 felony.

On January 25, Ryan hit a woman in the area of Eighth Street and South Avenue B, when Ryan was driving southbound in her white sedan when she crashed into a woman crossing the street on the crosswalk on foot.

The judge noted the victim had a broken pelvis, ankle, shoulder, and arm.

Ryan was arrested on February 2 after officers contacted the registered owner of a 2007 blue Saturn Sky.

She has been in custody since the arrest and will begin serving her sentence immediately.
