Arrest Made in Epping Hit-and-Run That Critically Injured a Woman

New Hampshire police arrested a suspect for the hit-and-run driver that critically injured a woman in Epping, New Hampshire early Monday morning.

Andrea Rich, 55, of Epping was arrested at approximately 9:00 a.m. on Monday. She is charged with conduct after an accident.

Police were called to the Xtra Mart/Dunkin Donuts on Calef Highway just before 4 a.m. where a woman was on the ground suffering from "extensive injuries."

An investigation determined that the victim had been walking on the south side of the building when she was struck by a pickup truck.

Police said Rich got out of the vehicle, then got back in and fled the scene.

A customer found the victim a short time later and called for help.

The victim, who has not been identified, was taken to a local hospital to be treated for life-threatening injuries. Her current condition is unclear.

The investigation is ongoing and Rich may face additional charges. Her arraignment is set for Feb. 9. It is unclear if she has a lawyer.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Epping police at 603-679-5122.
