Nassau County police arrested Caroline Maggio on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident with serious physical injury.

Third Squad detectives alleged Maggio struck the 54-year-old victim with her Oldsmobile station wagon at the corner of Foch Boulevard and Hillside Avenue at 6:38 p.m., then fled the scene.

Maggio was quickly apprehended at her home and was released on an appearance ticket.

She will be arraigned Oct. 22 at First District Court in Hempstead.
