Denver teen in intensive care after hit-and-run

DENVER (AP) – A Denver teen hit by a car while crossing the street near her school remains in intensive care nearly a week after the accident.

The family of 16-year-old Deyondrah Bridgeman told KMGH-TV ( Tuesday that they hope the tragedy remind people of the importance of careful driving.

Deyondrah was hit on Colfax Avenue near East High School on Feb. 27. A teacher at an Aurora school, Erin Jackson, is accused of running a red light before hitting the teen and fleeing. She turned herself in the following day and has been released on $25,000 bond.

Deyondrah’s family has set up a fund at Wells Fargo for anyone who wants to contribute to her medical bills.
