SACO (AP) — A grand jury has added a felony motor vehicle charge to six other charges a Saco man faces for allegedly leaving the scene after striking an elderly woman out walking her dog.

The victim, 87-year-old Jewell Friedman of Saco, died in in the hospital in July, several weeks after she was struck by a pickup truck.

The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/ZT7cTl) reported that the new charge against Leo Paul Bedard III is operating a motor vehicle with a revoked or suspended license resulting in death.

The 45-year-old Bedard has already pleaded not guilty to six charges connected to the June 21 hit-and-run.
