GIBSON CO., IN (WFIE) -

Indiana State Police have made an arrest in connection to the April 25 hit and run crash that seriously injured 23-year-old Aaron Henry, of Princeton. 

Friday afternoon Indiana State Police arrested 24-year-old Brittany Bauman, of Mt. Vernon.

ISP say she turned herself in to the Gibson County Jail.

Shortly after midnight on April 25, Bauman was traveling northbound on U.S. 41 south of Coalmine Road. 

Henry and his 19-year-old friend, were riding their bicycles northbound on the shoulder of U.S. 41.

Police say for unknown reasons, Bauman's vehicle left the road on the right side and struck Henry's bicycle.

He was immediately thrown from his bicycle and collided into the vehicle's windshield.

Authorities say Bauman's car continued northbound dragging the bicycle until she allegedly stopped near Coalmine Road to remove it from underneath the vehicle.  

Police say Bauman continued north on U.S. 41 to Princeton and failed to contact police as required by law. 

Henry was airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital where he was treated for serious injuries.

Later that morning, Bauman allegedly drove her damaged vehicle to an Evansville body shop to have it repaired.  Authorities say she also reported to the Posey County Sheriff's Department that she had struck a deer the night before.

ISP says nearly 21 hours later, Bauman contacted Indiana State Police regarding her involvement in the incident.

After reviewing the investigation conducted by Indiana State Police, Gibson County Prosecutor's Office issued a felony warrant today for Bauman's arrest.  She was released after posting a $750.00 cash bond.
